In celebration of International Women's Day, Tesco Ireland is once again partnering with the Women's Museum of Ireland, to curate a new exhibition celebrating noted Irish female trailblazers ahead of International Women’s Day, which falls this Sunday 8 March, 2020.
The retailer is currently hosting a virtual museum across its store network throughout the country that 'promotes the formal recognition' of the role of women in Irish history.
The installation is showcasing five pioneering Irish women including a Dublin firefighter, a professional motor racing driver, the mother of Irish cookery, the first Irish woman to be called to the bar and an award-winning surgeon were lauded for their pioneering contributions to society and work in their respective fields, the retailer said.
"We’re surrounded by inspirational women across the country every day who work and shop in our stores, so this year we wanted to take the opportunity to shine a light on a mix of modern-day and historical trailblazers across a range of different professions," said Kari Daniels, CEO, Tesco Ireland.
"We hope that – by telling the stories of these Career Pioneers - we can provide some inspiration of our own to our colleagues and customers right across the country."
Shining a Spotlight
Jeanne Sutton, co-founder and volunteer of the Women’s Museum of Ireland said that the partnership with Tesco helps the museum to reach a whole new audience.
"The Women’s Museum of Ireland continues to live online so to have physical space in which to shine a spotlight on some of Ireland’s most impressive female pioneers means a lot to us," she said.
