Having worked in Dáil Éireann for the last number of years, Jennifer gives her opinion on whether Irish politics is still a “boys' club” and what can be done to get more women active in politics. 

Lyndsey is an All-Star footballer who has been representing Dublin since she was 14. She speaks about encouraging more young girls to get involved in sport, while also talking about her job as a fire-fighter. 

Caoimhe, recently appointed as Trócaire’s first female CEO, speaks about the challenges facing women globally and the importance of empowering women to be leaders in their communities.
