Women's coalition

Usually for any middle ground party, this is the third time this week the Northern Ireland Women’s Coalition has hit the headlines.

In response to Newt Emerson’s controversial attack on the Women’s Coalition, Monica McWilliams wrote in yesterday’s Irish News:

“Women have to be at the table to contribute to solving problems, whether it’s a local issue or negotiations for an international peace agreement. I’m not talking about one or two token women, but as full participants. Yet in Northern Ireland women are seriously under-represented in local councils, the assembly and the House of Commons.”
