      I remember fellas like Paul , from my school and college days. So desperate to lick up, they get friend zoned straight away.

    I support every feature for International Women’s Day – and this is great – but I have to remark that the women and girls that are NOT empowered need efforts to be focussed specifically on them rather than the privileged educated women pictured above. The latter have so many rights (some still lacking in Ireland of course) but many millions of African and Asian women do not.

    I recognise Mary Robinson. The old lady in the top right might be a Childers. Otherwise, nada. I may have been living out of the country for too long.

    I’d hardly call the blogger one , on the left hand side, an innovator….. or anything of the sort. My other half watches her, brain dead stuff.

      well someone did,
      Not me, but here’s what they said

      Back row: Pauline Sargent, Annie Atkins, Sonia Flynn, Orna Holland, Stella Power, MD of Annertech, Sinead McSweeney, Angela Nagle, Karlin Lillington, Maire O’Neill, Lilian Bland, Carmel Snow

      Middle row: Ursula Clarke, Kathryn O’Donoghue, Dee Forbes, Cathy Kearney, Barbara McCarthy, Jane ní Dhulchaointigh, Paula Reed, Olivia Leonard, Edel Lynch, Iseult Ward, Aoibheann O’Brien, Maire O’Riordan

      Front row: Doireann Garrihy, Cathriona Hallahan, Angela Scanlon, Eimear Noone, Mary Robinson, Samantha Barry, Ann O’Dea, Susan McKenna-Lawlor, Mary Carty, Elva Carri

      Interestingly, one gets her job title, so we’re supposed to know who everyone else is.

      1. Bertie Blenkinsop

        Angela Scanlon is fantastic an’ all but I don’t really see why she’s there and not say Laura Whitmore for example.

          Or the lovely woman who checks parking meters in town…what’s her name…Rita.

          1. And Social Justice For All

            What – if you leave your car in the garage she comes in through the bathroom window to put a nipple clamp on you?

        2. Frilly Keane

          At least you know who she is

          I’ll have’ta google her

          But I know Laura
          I assumed that was her behind the bass drum with a new hair do

          bad form alright
          like she’s done very well for herself

          1. bisted

            …I’d like to publicly apologise to Marie O’Riordan for thinking she was a FG person with a muppet name…(2nd row far right)

      If you created a picture of men with similar jobs [Professor of this, CEO of that, CFO of the other, …] – you’d probably be equally confused of who they are. We recognise the famous ones – the TV presenters, singers and Presidents. The others are just random well-paid people.

    Okay, I recognise Robo, Dee Forbes, and your woman from Microsoft but who are the others? Oh and Karlin Lillington. It’s just a pic of random women, mostly in the media.

      1. Zoella

        Úna who, O’Hagan? She’s a good newscaster, definitely deserves to be there in that bunch of media randomers. But would she want to be.
