Women's Caucus of SDCC celebrate inspiring local women

08 Mar 24

The South Dublin Women’s Caucus held an exhibition named “Women of South Dublin” in Rua Red on 6 March to celebrate inspiring women from South Dublin.

In October 2023, the Women’s Caucus invited the public to nominate inspiring women from South Dublin. They received an abundance of nominations and the judging panel managed to whittle it down to 34 women from around the County.


Women of South Dublin shines a spotlight on incredible Women who have led change in different areas of need in their local communities, be it through their own action and initiative, or by leading others. Through telling their stories, Women of South Dublin aims to highlight that women are already playing a key leadership and advocacy role, which will hopefully inspire other women to do similar.


The exhibition was attended by the Mayor, the South Dublin County Council’s Women’s Caucus, the women being celebrated and their family and friends.

The exhibition will be available to the public in Tallaght Library until 15 March and the digital exhibition will be shown across all South Dublin County Council social media platforms for the month of March.


At the event the Mayor said “I’m extremely proud to see the amount of volunteer and unpaid work that goes on every day across our county. These women are the backbone of communities and through their efforts they create the inclusive, safe, and desirable environments that we all want to live in. This wonderful exhibition is not only a testament to the women involved but will no doubt encourage and inspire more people to get involved in their communities thorough the environment, the arts, sports, or charity work.”


Chair of the Women’s Caucus Cllr Vicki Casserly said “On behalf of the Women’s Caucus, it was deeply important for us to recognise and pay tribute to the powerful and inspirational women in our community. International Women’s Day is a day where we celebrate equality and participation of women in society. Our goal as a Caucus is to ensure we do our best to recognise the needs of women in our community and encourage women to support and empower other women and future generations. These women have inspired inclusion in our county and in the true spirit of international women’s day, we celebrate them.
