On 23 November 2016, the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality, Frances Fitzgerald TD and the Minister of State with special responsibility for Equality, Immigration and Integration, David Stanton TD, launched a public consultation on the forthcoming National Women's Strategy. The new Strategy will set out Government policy on promoting equality and the empowerment of women and girls from 2017 to 2020.

The public consultation process is open from 23 November 2016 and will conclude at 17:00 on Friday 27 January 2017.
