Description:
2001 was a year With an incred1ble amount of activity and outputs by the NWCI - the seven reports of the Millennium Project were completed and launched by Mary Robinson at our annual conference and the Kelleher research, Framing the Future, was also completed this year These Grainne Healy NWO Chairwoman research reports are significant outputs because they capture the needs and issues of women in the third millennium. They cover the voice of women and bring them to the centre of NWCI's policy mak1ng wor1d and project activity. Marking the UN International Year of the Volunteer allowed us to focus our gratitude and admiration on the women of the NWCI who in the past and in the present play a huge role 1n the development of the organisation and in the provision of supports to women. The Honorary Members are the women who created spaces into which we have stepped, while the affiliates who were honoured, represent a small number of the women whose organisations make up the women's movement in Ireland today. lt was a pleasure and an honour for the NWCI to say 'thank you' to these women - a gesture that reminds us that we are links in the chain and that so many women are grants 1n the landscape of volunteerism. We are, as poet Mary Dorcey reminds us, moving into the space cleared by our mothers'. The Objective of the activity of NWCI reflects the areas of develop1ng concern ~nd priority. Thus, the new Women~ Human Rights Project will gather pace in 2002, while the work in education under ZEST and EEI support work forges ahead. The project work allows the NWCI to make some links between women in Ireland and elsewhere on the globe and to extend the work we do through the European Women's Lobby - especially In 2001 through our participation at the UN World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xe and Related Intolerance xenophobia The wor1d of the Human Rights Project and our new project. In From the Margin, will allow the NWCI to bring Information dissemination and Information gathering activity on issues which connect the local to the global. This outreach approach reflects best . practice and the way forward for the world of the NWCI.
