Motion text

That this House mourns the loss of Inez McCormack, an internationally-renowned human rights activist from Northern Ireland; praises her work in promoting employment equality in Northern Ireland as the Regional Secretary of UNISON and in working with others to ensure that the trades union movement was widely recognised as a non-partisan agent for change in the Northern Ireland peace process; notes that she was the first female President of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions and that Newsweek last year placed her in its 150 Women Who Shake the World for her work in enabling women to improve the quality of their lives; further notes that she was the founder of the respected Participation and the Practice of Rights organisation, which provides support to disadvantaged communities and groups in using a rights-based approach to change social and economic inequalities and deprivation; and joins her many admirers, including President Michael D Higgins, Hillary Clinton, Meryl Streep and President Mary Robinson in remembering an extraordinary and inspiring woman who dedicated her life to championing women's rights and combating gender-based violence in Northern Ireland and in countries of conflict.
