To celebrate International Women's Day 2018, RTÉ is organising a live event with an inspirational panel of women, which will be recorded for a programme to air on RTÉ Radio 1 and on RTÉ Radio 1 Extra.

I will be joined by Margaret Martin, (Director, Women’s Aid), Siobhan Murray, (Psychotherapist) and special guest Katherine Lynch (Comedian & Actress) for the event and our focus will be on great conversation and entertainment. The event is being produced by the wonderful Regina Looby.

Tickets, which are now sold out, were just €5, with all profits going to Women's Aid.

Why ARE we doing this?
We're a small team in RTÉ LifeStyle, myself (Editor) and fab Sínann (Digital Content Creator), supported by our great group of contributors, all of whom are passionate about the key topics that we cover wellness, food, fashion, parenting, budgeting, travel and more. We get to interview and feature amazing people throughout the year who are doing and creating great things, products and events around the country.

Looking at International Women's Day, we've touched on numerous topics, some of which have really resonated with many of you, such as our interview with Norah Casey when she spoke out against domestic abuse, David Coleman's advice on raising girls to become strong independent women, Anna Geary's tips on "embracing our bodies" no matter what shape we are and many more. We wanted to use this occasion to meet some of our audience face-to-face and have more in-depth relevant conversations with women that we can learn from.

It's happening...Thursday March 8th, 2018, 6 to 8pm in The Little Museum of Dublin. 

Watch: Norah Casey opened up about how Dancing with the Stars helped her overcome some of the challenges she has faced in recent years
