Following an initiative by Green Senator Grace O'Sullivan, the Oireachtas is to formally establish a women's caucus, which can currently draw members from every political party and independent grouping (with only the Independent Alliance lacking distaff politicians). Whether political discourse becomes less confrontational as a result remains to be seen, but potential for cross-grouping ideas to emerge.

Women's caucus to be set up for TDs and Senators

"The AAA-PBP TD Ruth Coppinger chose not to attend because she said she did not agree with attending "a meeting which routinely inflicts on other women"."

What does she mean?

Anytime a socialist sees or feels part of a group, they're instinctively compelled to rage against it.

It sounds silly. Like something from a playground.

Unless they are involved in the running of it, & given a title.

Another step-in the Americanisation of Ireland. Could we not come up with a Gaelic name like "aos Dana" or "tuath"? The caucus was originally a Native American Indian institution.

Is she still around? I suspected she was behind these shenanigans.

Ah , sure what harm?

If a woman wants to convene a meeting of women, across party lines, to find common ground with others, around issues that a historically male-dominated governments haven't focused on....let them at it....


The 'caucus' nomenclature though....'tis a bit meh.

Aaa that's nice, There first Split

Could be the collective victimhood whining would be to much to bare.

Or it's just a trotter being a trotter.

Hard to know what goes on in a middleclass trotters mind

So will they swap recipes and cleaning tips on how to keep their Men happy, that is aside from the Lesbians who were too ugly to get a man anyway.

Can any group set up to exclude others on the basis of race, greed or gender be a good idea?

Are they women first and public Reps later and if so were they elected as such?

Would a male caucus be acceptable?
