On Wednesday 14th March, we will host our fourth Raising Feminists panel with guests Sarah Breen, Sue Jordan and Sinead Redmond. As with all other events, all proceeds will go the the Abortion Rights Campaign.
Talking about sex with your children , and promoting healthy body image and good self esteem aren’t the preserve of Feminist parenting. But if feminism is , at it’s core, about equality and respect for all, including oneself, then promoting these positive messages to our children is key.
Feminism, at its core, is about equality. In patriarchal society women have been , and are, at a disadvantage. How does this society also disadvantage fathers?
At our first Raising Feminists panel, the conversation organically turned to the raising of feminist daughters. But boys need feminism too.
February 15th saw the first motherhub event take place in the Workman’s Club in Dublin. On the panel to discuss ‘Raising Feminists’ were Roisin Ingle (Irish Times), Senator Lynn Ruane, Dr Marie Moran (UCD Equality Studies) and Melanie Lynch (Herstory founder).
