Equality Through the Ages

A one-day international symposium organised through NUI Galway – University of Limerick Strategic

NUI Galway 01:00 :: 24th June 2011

Ms. Justice Catherine McGuinness will chair a seminar entitled Equality Through the Ages which examines key gender equality issues from birth to old age. The seminar is an initiative of women academics at the two Universities and the Irish Centre for Social Gerontology, NUI Galway.

The seminar draws on the holistic approaches to policy planning and legal reform identified by the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women.

The event will be closed by eminent activist, Ms. Sylvia Meehan, whose vision of women’s equality has led to her being awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Limerick in 1997 and the prestigious ’Person of the Year Award’ in 2009, also the year of her 80th birthday.
