Public Consultation

A public call for submissions opened on 29 January with a closing date of 6 March. Respondents had the option of responding to a structured online questionnaire or alternatively submitting a response by email or by post using their own preferred style and structure. 

The final question in the survey asked respondents 'In which area do you think gender inequality matters most?' See below the overall results1 of the question. Individual responses to this question are published with submissions below.


1 Last updated on 9 March 2020. The above chart is based on the 109 respondents that answered this question at this date. For a detailed overview of how the numbers were calculated, please see here.


Submissions from organisations are published below. We are currently reviewing submissions from individuals, which will be published over the coming weeks. Submissions will be taken into consideration in the development of the agenda for Assembly weekends and as part of the Citizens' deliberations. As well as being available online to all members of the Assembly and interested parties, an independent researcher, Dr. Pauline Cullen of Maynooth University, has been engaged to analyse and summarise the submissions. During the meetings she will give a summary of the views expressed in the submissions on the topics being addressed during that particular weekend.

We will not publish personal information. In cases where an individual has made a submission containing details of their personal experience and requested that their identity be protected, we will publish the submission under 'Name with Secretariat'. We also reserve the right to redact defamatory or explicit content and personal information. Where individuals have submitted more than one response, we will publish all contributions under one number. Please note that confirming these decisions can take some time so there may be a delay in uploading submissions which fall into these categories.

The numbers assigned to each submission are in order of receipt.
