The Irish Women's Parliamentary Caucus, established in 2017, is a cross-party forum for Irish women parliamentarians to discuss and campaign on issues predominantly affecting women.
In March, the Women's Caucus moved motions on period poverty in the Dáil and Seanad. The debates highlighted the difficulties some women experience in accessing affordable sanitary products and called on the Government to provide free sanitary products in all public buildings.
The constitution outlines the vision, mission, membership and working arrangements of the Irish Women's Parliamentary Caucus.
The Irish Women's Parliamentary Caucus hosted the first International Congress of Parliamentary Women's Caucuses on 9-10 September 2018 in Dublin Castle, Ireland.
The conference brought together female parliamentarians from more than 40 countries to discuss issues facing women and how parliamentarians can work to address them.
