As International Women's Day approaches on March 8, Irish women from across public life reflect on their path to feminism and consider the next key challenges facing women in Ireland. Tara Flynn Actress, comedian and writer Feminism, to me, is naming discrimination where it exists. Misogyny runs deeply but almost invisibly in our culture, from the daily and mundane to the pay gap and threat of violence. It's no craic naming it, but it's the only place to start. I'm not a fan of 'Lean In' feminism, where some women get to thrive in a system many others are shut out of. I'm a much bigger fan of checking who's not in the room, and trying to see how they can get in. Feminism shouldn't only be for middle-class white women (like me) who want to be CEOs (unlike me). I used to be one of those "we don't need feminism" people when I was younger: "We want equality, regardless of gender!" I guess I didn't want to be considered 'off-putting' or 'difficult'. Internalised misogyny is real, and I … [Read more...] about What does it mean to be a feminist? Some of Ireland’s most well-known faces give their take on the f-word

When Düzen Tekkal announced that she was going to Iraq in 2014, almost nobody could understand why. SEE ALSO: IS-abused Yazidi women find sanctuary in Black Forest It was just after American journalist James Foley was brutally beheaded in Raqqa, Syria by Islamic State (IS) jihadists, further confirming that this region was one of the most dangerous places on earth. But Tekkal felt she had to be in this part of this world – because she wanted to tell the stories of her people. “I went there as a journalist, became a war writer overnight and came back as a human rights activist,” Tekkal, 40, tells The Local. 'ISIS made us popular in a bad way' Tekkal was born and raised in Hanover, Lower Saxony, with Kurdish/Yazidi roots. Her parents came from Turkey as Gastarbeiter – migrant workers who moved to West Germany as part of the guest worker programme – and for religious and political reasons. When Tekkal was young, she can remember her father … [Read more...] about ‘What does it mean to be German nowadays?’: Yazidi activist on integration and refugees
LONDON (Reuters) - Three pro-EU lawmakers from Britain’s governing Conservative Party quit to join an independent group in parliament on Wednesday, in a blow to Prime Minister Theresa May’s attempts to unite her party around her Brexit plans. WHAT DOES IT MEAN? May’s Conservative Party does not have a majority in parliament and is only able to govern thanks to a deal with 10 lawmakers from the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party. The resignations mean that May’s position in parliament has been weakened even further, at a time when she needs to be able to win a crucial vote approving whatever Brexit deal she is able to strike with the EU. There are now 313 active Conservative lawmakers in the 650-seat parliament. With the DUP support this means May now has a working majority of 7 seats, down from 13. This is calculated based on the fact that some lawmakers do not take up their seats, and others act as neutral speakers. In reality, the three defectors … [Read more...] about Factbox: Who has quit May’s Conservative Party? And what does it mean?
