Welcome to our WINning blog

What started as a way to highlight events and news will be expanding, as the group itself goes through this exciting period of growth and change.

We are now accepting blog submissions and photos from any members about the WIN events you attend. Or, maybe you have news about something cultural in the Irish community? An exciting update about an opportunity for women in tech? A project you are working on that you think the group should know about?

We’re looking forward to showcasing our members, their achievements and interests – and to see your names up in lights! Please submit your blog, or even an outline to discuss, to enquiries@womensirishnetwork.com. (Our volunteers will do their best to accommodate as many people as possible.)

  • 🎞️Do not miss tonight's London premier of  A Girl From Mogadishu 🎥 screened by our friends at the @irishfilmlondon
.
📅 2 Feb (tonight)
🕰️ 7.30 - 9.45
📍Regent Street Cinema
🎫 @irishfilmlondon

Based on the testimony of global FGM activist Ifrah Ahmed, the film is written and directed by Mary McGuckian. Fleeing war-torn Somalia in 2006, Ifrah Ahmed is trafficked to Ireland where a traumatic medical examination when seeking asylum reveals the extent of her mutilation as a child. Traumatised by the memory, she channels the experience into a force for change and emerges as a formidable campaigner against Female Genital Mutilation at the highest political echelons.

The screening of this emotional and fascinating new will be followed by Q&A with the film’s director Mary McGuckian, Dr. Comfort Momoh MBE and Dr. Bonnie Greer OBE, hosted by internationally renowned social activist and founder of Dahlia project, Dr. Leyla Hussein OBE. .
This screening is a part of the Brigid’s Day Festival / Lá Fhéile Bríde.
