Dr Micheline Sheehy Skeffington will present the first table at a Conference on Gender Inequality at NUI Galway this Friday 4th December. (The table is published below.) Last month was the anniversary of her historic Equality Tribunal win which proved for the first time that discrimination was responsible for how few women are promoted by Irish universities …” (from Micheline’s Three Conditions, 3 December 2015).
