The EveryWoman Project

On Saturday the 1st of February, 2020 at 7pm in Collins Barracks the interior courtyard was lit up with images of trans women and non-binary femme identifying people. This event marked the inclusion of these women in an event designed to celebrate women and equality in Ireland and internationally – Herstory Ireland.

The EveryWoman Project by the Stairlings Collective is a celebration of trans women and non-binary femme folk in Ireland. It’s a project designed by young trans women to create a positive representation of trans people, to inspire confidence in others and to develop relationships with other members of their community. It’s an opportunity to say thank you for the community spirit which these women do so much to sustain and to recognise the need for positive representation which helps to make life tolerable, happy and fulfilled for the younger generation who are growing up in Ireland today.

The women that are being celebrated in this event are representative of a community of women who have faced exclusion from Irish society but it is our belief that these women act as a beacon of hope for others who may be struggling. We wish to recognise each individual for their contribution to this project and for standing up in solidarity with trans women and non-binary femme folk who have not yet found their feet.
