Period Poverty: Motion
Ruth Coppinger (Dublin West, Solidarity)
Exactly. That is why, from the socialist-feminist perspective that I come from, I do not participate in the Oireachtas women's parliamentary caucus. The majority of participants are members of Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and the Labour Party, all of which have participated in Governments that have cut women's incomes, will not pay nurses properly, which is the most practical way to close the gender pay gap, and do not stand for a woman's right to choose. I choose to spend my time on activism and in other forums.
