Inspirational Women: A Conversation with Monica McWilliams

The story of Monica McWilliams is truly extraordinary. A groundbreaking leader and campaigner for peace in Northern Ireland, Monica was a signatory of the Good Friday Agreement on behalf of the Northern Ireland Women’s Coalition, which she co-founded. She served in Northern Ireland’s first Legislative Assembly and as Chief Commissioner of the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission. She is a former chair of the governing board of the international NGO, Interpeace, and has worked with women in conflict societies including in the Middle East and South Africa.

Her book, ‘Stand Up, Speak Out’ was recently published by Blackstaff Press.
