NUIG Feminist Society boycott of Renua backfires

NUIG Feminist Society boycott of Renua backfires
Just hours before a Women in Politics discussion was due to get underway at the NUIG library on Tuesday night , Its Co-Organisers , The NUIG feminist society announced on their Facebook page that they were pulling out of the discussion because of the participation of a pro life local election candidate Emma O'Connell from the Renua Party.

In a public statement on their Facebook Page it wrote :
 

Hello everyone. 
 
We just wanted to notify you all that we will no longer be co-hosting the Women in Politics panel discussion this evening due to the involvement of a candidate from the party Renua. As a party, Renua do not align, and actively work against, the values outlined in our mission statement and we believe we would be doing a disservice to our membership in offering them a platform. We as a movement should be aware of the consequences of uncritically supporting women in politics when the views of those women contribute to the oppression and marginalization of others. As outlined in our mission statement The Feminist Society of NUI Galway is firmly pro-choice.Thank you, and we hope you understand our position. Apologies for any confusion this has caused to our membership. 
 
 Kind regards, Hayley
 Auditor, NUIG Feminist Society


However , The statement was slammed on Facebook with more than 300 Comments in 3 hours all heavily critical of the decision . 

Faced with such a backlash , the Feminist Society backtracked and posted to their Facebook Page

Just popping in to the comments one last time to remind everyone that the panel discussion is still taking place & the Renua candidate has not been uninvited. We haven't silenced anyone, we just don't think we should have to be involved if we are not comfortable doing so. We are a group made up of young student volunteers and are far from "fascists" or "extremists" or any of the other things we have been accused of being in these comments. Thanks.


Earlier in the week , the Galway City Tribune reported on how organisers had disinvited another pro life election candidate . Nuala Nolan of the Aontú Party was disinvited by the other Co-organiser of the event , the NUIG Sinn Féin Society . The Chairwoman of that society Roisin Nic Lochlainn told the Galway City Tribune that one of its members had "faced the consequences" for inviting Nuala Nolan and said it was "totally inappropriate that a party such as Aontu be given a platform" . The feminist society also told the Galway City Tribune that they were "deeply uncomfortable platforming the views" of Aontu and Renua .. "they are contrary to our mission statement which includes the facts that we are firmly pro choice" .

A true feminist would be in favour of women being born but these are clearly against it and many of them support abortion up to birth . and maybe even after .
^
yes , interesting times ahead at NUI galway , plenty of support for the pro life voice being heard , intellectual space is whats required . universities should do their best to ensure freedom of expression to all .
^
i agree aisling , Mna na hEireann need to stamp out radical feminism , it is destroying society and making some people very lonely and isolated .
