Connecting Women to Local Government
Longford County Council in collaboration with Longford Women’s Link, See Her Elected and Longford Public Participation Network wants to encourage the participation of women from a diverse range of backgrounds to become involved in local and national decision-making. All stakeholders acknowledge that the lack of voices of women, from all backgrounds, when decisions are being made in Longford (and elsewhere) means that women may not be adequately represented.
This booklet was funded by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage and forms part of an initiative by Longford County Council to increase the participation and presence of women from diverse backgrounds in local government in 2024 and beyond. Its purpose is to inform and educate those wishing to learn more about Local Government and their local County Council. It has been prepared by Longford County Council and the See Her Elected Programme, Longford Women’s Link in partnership with the Public Participation Network. County Longford is rich in a diversity of cultures and in order to support and reflect our community we have translated this booklet into five different languages, Polish, Lithuanian, Latvian, Slovak, Brazilian Portuguese, all of which are available below.
