This is your invitation to Independent Living Movement Ireland (ILMI) International Women’s Day Event 2023:  7th of March at 7pm via Zoom

ILMI Logo Independent Living Movement Ireland. Freedom Rights Empowerment

Join us as we ask ourselves the question “Do we need Equality before Equity?”

As strong women on our good days we have an obligation to give back to our peers, community, allies and of course….each other. We say good days because we hope this is a starting point that all of us together will have more good days and be stronger in our collective power. The reality is we have more in common with each other then what sets us apart.

The ILMI IWD Celebration event will have some incredible guest speakers and performers which spans the length and breadth of disability culture, fashion, science, business, music and written word.

Please share this invitation within your networks and join us for a Tuesday Night “in” you will never forget.

Dress code is “Night Club” and feel free to have a favourite beverage. Please email to be on the VIP list!
