We call on parties to nominate more female candidates to run for #SE2020 and for co-option to the more than 30 council seats left vacant by successful #GE2020 contestants who won Dáil seats. https://t.co/W2VemqH2kF

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%)
