Limerick Women’s Network
The Limerick Women’s Network promotes gender equality through their work with women who experience multiple forms of oppression. They provide an information and drop-in service for women, and supply information on a range of issues such as health provision, screening services and violence against women services. Additionally, they provide supports for women to return to education or training and to access employment or volunteering opportunities. They work with all women but specifically their focus is on women who experience marginalisation and those from vulnerable communities.
Ormston House is delighted to welcome Limerick Women’s Network (LWN) to celebrate International Women’s Day 2020. This will be our third time working with LWN and we look forward to their event which includes song, dance and poetry, as well as talks by Jean Tierney (Operation Transformation), Valerie Murphy (Breast Care) and our elected councillors from the Limerick Women’s Caucus. This year’s collaboration has even more importance as Limerick Women’s Network is one of the community partners on our 2020 artistic programme: The Feminist Supermarket. This evolving programme focuses on access, diversity and inclusion in the arts, and is funded by the Arts Council of Ireland Visual Art Project Award and the Limerick Culture & Arts Office.
Admission is free and all women are welcome.
