Time 4 Equality

The growing global movement around women’s oppression and specifically issues such as femicide and sexual harassment have inspired us to join the international call for action on these issues on International Women’s Day 2019. Developments in Ireland North and South over the last year – including the #IBelieveHer and #ThisIsNotConsent movement, the Google walk out to name but a few – have highlighted how much these issues are of concern for women and young people. Working women have been disproportionately on the receiving end of the ravages of a decade of austerity, and similarly have and will be at the forefront of the fight back — the historic role of the workers’ movement in founding International Women’s Day is more relevant than ever.

Where: O’connells Bridge – Dublin

When: 3pm

Jhumpa Lahiri – Launch of “Italian Short Stories”

Jhumpa Lahiri will join the IIC to launch “The Penguin Book of Italian Short Stories”, a landmark collection which brings together forty writers that reflect over a hundred years of Italy’s vibrant and diverse short story tradition, from the birth of the modern nation to the end of the twentieth century. Poets, journalists, visual artists, musicians, editors, critics, teachers, scientists, politicians, translators: the writers that inhabit these pages represent a dynamic cross-section of Italian society, their powerful voices resonating through regional landscapes, private passions, and dramatic political events. This wide-ranging selection includes well-known authors such as Italo Calvino, Elsa Morante and Luigi Pirandello alongside many captivating new discoveries. More than a third of the stories featured in this volume have been translated into English for the first time, several of them by Lahiri herself.

Where: Istituto Italiano Di Cultura – Dublino, 11 Fitzwilliam Square East, Dublin

When: 6:30pm to 8pm
