Quiz: How much do you know about gender equality in Ireland?

We’ve spent the last month looking at the progress being made – and the work left to be done.

AS WE NEAR the end of The Good Information Project’s first cycle of the new year, it’s time to reflect on what we’ve learned about gender equality. 

This month’s coverage has looked at the rich history of what women have achieved in Ireland, and highlighted the many challenges that remain.

We’ve brought you interactive reporting on childcare to thorough analyses of the obstacles facing women in sectors such as academia, medicine, politics, personal finance and the digital space.

We’re signing off with a quiz so you can test your own knowledge of Ireland’s performance when it comes to gender balance.
