It was our way of staying connected with the Women for Election network. Many of you suggested some great books, and we have decided to compile them all in a handy list.

Thanks also to @OrlaithCarmody for this insightful session on #confidence.

Great to see @peterburkefg progressing the Moorehead recommendation to remunerate Councillors in line with standardised pay and conditions.

This will help make it possible for #MoreWomen to put themselves forward for election.
