While #GE2020 has been rightly described as a missed opportunity for gender equality in our political system, three constituencies returned #MoreWomen than men to the 33rd Dáil.

We can do better. We must do better.

Best wishes to all TDs entering the 33rd #Dáil today, with a special mention to the 36 women

Here's a % breakdown of the women TDs by party
@SocDems - 4 (67%)
@sinnfeinireland - 13 (35%)
@pb4p - 1 (33%)
@FineGael - 6 (17%)
@greenparty_ie - 2 (17%)
@fiannafailparty - 5 (13%)

ICYMI: New women in the Dáil, @neasa_neasa, @HollyLeahCairns, Norma Foley and @PaulineTully2 joined @TodaySOR to talk about life in politics and why it's important to have #MoreWomen represented.

https://t.co/k8rTR5gEAO

We're proud to have either worked with or trained 86% of the women elected to the 33rd Dáil.

But as #GE2020 highlighted, our work is far from done.

We will continue to encourage and support #MoreWomen until we see equal representation in our political system.
