An end to gender-based violence and harassment
Well Valentines Day perpetuates the tradition of men harassing women with anonymous mail.

I've no problem with that being cancelled.

Although in fairness, the feminazis probably don't encounter that anyway.

I asked my bird if she is attending. She said, and I quote, 'not if that cúnt Ruth Coppinger has organised it'.

Can that be a new Godwin rule?

I genuinely thought this was a Waterford whispers type skit when I read it earlier..

What gender pay gap are they protesting about ?

And how is a protest going to stop “gender based harassment” whatever that is..

Do the "precarious working conditions" in the OP refer to womens' deaths in construction or farming?

I think accidents in the home probably outnumber those.

And yet making things up is what you appear to have just done?

Now, I’m not a feminist, and as soon as I saw the mention of Ruth Coppinger in the article in the opening post, I sighed and eye rolled. Thankfully, I do not imagine Ms. Coppinger represents, or speaks for the female demographic in Ireland, let alone Western society.

So that kinda begs the question for me regarding your comment that “women... have access to way more power and influence than they deserve”, how much power and influence do you imagine half the members of any given society should have exactly if we were to balance the distribution of power and influence solely upon sex?

I would say each should represent their own, so I don’t have any issue with women representing themselves, whatever their politics. I also object to the likes of an idiot with a plastic bag on his head portraying himself as the equivalent of Ruth Coppinger for men, but again I’m aware that there are men who identify with the idiot in the same way as there are women who identify with idiots. I don’t consider either of those representatives a credible threat to Irish society is all, so if they want to make exhibitions of themselves, let them off. They can be safely ignored.

They lose credibility by shoehorning the gender pay gap in with serious issues like sexual violence.

Load of nonsense. Most, in fact all, sensible women want nothing to do with this bunch of man hating loons. I'm married to a wonderful man; some of my best friends are male; I like it when a man holds a door open for me or treats me like a lady. And quite frankly,it's sickening to see how all men are being demonized for the actions of a few.

I need some brandy now.

Are they protesting the treatment of Mary Robinson, Frances Fitzgerald and Noirin O'Sullivan?
Do they know who Elizabeth Dunne, Iseult O'Malley & Mary Finlay Geoghegan are?
