A restored Assembly must deliver for women – Sheerin

Sinn Féin MLA Emma Sheerin has told an International Women’s Day event in Glasgow that a restored Assembly must better deliver for the needs of women. 

Speaking from Glasgow at an event organised by Cairde na hÉireann, the Mid Ulster MLA said: 

“Tonight was a welcome opportunity to reiterate the need for the Assembly and Executive to be up and running to advance equality for women. 

“International Women’s Day provides an opportunity to reflect on the huge achievements that have been made for women in society, but also the work that there still is to do.

“We must always be mindful of the work that we all need to do to improve representation for women from ethnic minority backgrounds, LGBT+ women, or women living with disabilities.

“I am proud that over half of Sinn Féin’s Assembly Team are women. As representatives, we will ensure that, in a restored Assembly, to work to deliver for women.”

Education workers deserve fair pay & working conditions.

With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British Govt must urgently bring forward a pay deal for workers here.

We need an Executive restored now, & all parties working together to support workers & services.

In any other walk of life the person presiding over such a colossal failure would be sacked. The Minister for Justice is clearly not the person to restore people's confidence in public safety and she should resign.
