Lise McGreevy’s “I am Woman” Project and Exhibition – Part 1

Lise McGreevy

“In 2022, Northern Ireland still has vast gender inequality across all aspects of society, at a time when the adult population in NI is a majority 52% female. Inequality still reigns across all sectors of our community.

Empowering women as equals is vital; when on a local, and global stage, men so often still take the lead. Choosing 2022 as the year to collegiate her female equality art collection is particularly relevant Belfast Documentary Artist, Lise McGreevy. A core feminist, through her I AM WOMAN Programme Lise wishes to promote this key societal issue, at a time when the #MeToo campaign was still high on the public agenda. The project was made all the more important given the impact of the Covid lockdowns, creating a 200% increase in domestic violence and a surge in hate crime here in Northern Ireland
