Waterford women are getting political and standing beside actress Meryl Streep and feminist academic Elaine Aston to form a network of resistance against Trump’s exclusionary tactics and the slight-of-hand discrimination against women that pervades contemporary politics and social structures. Work has been going on in Waterford in the last year to celebrate women and the next event scheduled is in association with Herstory.ie entitled Waterford Herstory 20/20. The event will celebrate inspirational women from Waterford, past and present and will be hosted by Waterford Institute of Technology’s (WIT) Granary campus on the Quay in Waterford city on 20 February from 7pm – 8.30pm.

A number of guest speakers at the event will discuss inspirational, contemporary and historical Waterford women whose stories and experiences in the world of sport, broadcasting and business are aimed to inspire young men and women of the future. The Herstory salon series is part of series events to be scheduled nationwide this year on the 20th day of every month across the country in reaction to Donald Trump’s election and his reputation on equality and attitudes towards women in particular.
