#WakingTheFeminists is a grassroots movement calling
for equality for women across the Irish theatre sector.


We call on our national theatre to lead the way in establishing equality for women artists, and call on all venues, festivals and theatre companies in receipt of state funding to follow suit.

#WakingTheFeminists comprises women and men who are speaking out for equality for women in the theatre in Ireland. We are writers, directors, managers, actors, designers, choreographers, technicians, programmers, producers, artists and audience members. See the list of those involved at an organisational level here.

Campaign objectives for every organisation:

1. A sustained policy for inclusion with action plan and measurable results

2. Equal championing and advancement of women artists

3. Economic parity for all working in the theatre
