This International Women’s Day (IWD), IFA is urging women farmers to get involved in their local Branch or County Executives, by using their skills to strengthen the voice of Irish farmers at all policy levels – local, national and European.

IFA President Joe Healy said that this year’s IWD campaign is a call-to-action for driving gender balance, which marries with the ongoing work in IFA to increase gender diversity and women’s involvement in the leadership of the Association.

“Women play a major role in Irish agriculture. Our National Council has the highest ever female representation with seven members, but we want to see this increase throughout the organisation, to reflect the reality of farm enterprises around the country.”
