S.I. Dublin is a vibrant, active Club locally, nationally and internationally. For over 84 years, it has had many trailblazing women among its members, including Lillian Dillon, a pioneer in aviation and friend of Amelia Earhart; Freda Kinnear, the 1st female President of Veterinary Surgeons in Ireland and Dr Victoria Coffey, leading in her field of Paediatrics. In 2018 the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland recognised Dr Coffey for her work as a female physician. S.I. Dublin had one Federation President, Miss G Holloway, in 1948. We have had 5 National Presidents in our Club. Ann Kavanagh, a former club member, was a founding member of the Council for the Status of Women – now the National Women’s Council of Ireland. Through our work raising awareness and advocating for women’s issues, we have run projects in conjunction with many other organisations, including Ruhama and Women’s Aid. We were active members of the Turn off the Red-Light Campaign leading to the Sexual Offences Bill being finally passed in 2017.
