Wave Goodbye to Dinosaurs Film Screening

NI Rural Women’s Network partnered with Rural Community Network will be screening – ‘Wave Goodbye to Dinosaurs’.

‘Wave Goodbye to Dinosaurs’ is the extraordinary story of the Northern Ireland Women’s Coalition, a cross-community party formed in 1996. by local working and middle class women.

Frustrated with the stalemate of local politics, the women ran a door-to-door campaign to win 2 seats at the historic peace talks, which culminated in the Good Friday Agreement.

Timely and inspiring, Wave Goodbye to Dinosaurs is a compelling example of how grassroots activism can bring about real change.
