The concert will be held Wednesday, March 29th, at The Black Box in Galway. The event will raise funds to support court cases filed by the 5 women lecturers at NUI Galway who are fighting for their right to be promoted.
In the 2.34-minute video, Dr Micheline Sheehy Skeffington eloquently states the history of the injustices committed against the five women, who have taken NUI Galway to court over the university’s refusal to promote them to senior lecturer in 2009. In addition, two NUI Galway students passionately voice their support for the women lecturers and their right to be promoted. Micheline states that the concert is being held to help with the women’s court expenses as well as to provide moral support for what they are going through in their battle for equal rights.
