The conference entitled "Women Shaping the Future Political, Economic and Social Development on the Island of Ireland" was organised by the Northern Ireland Women's European Platform and the National Women's Council of Ireland. Supported by the European Commission and the U.S. ambassador to Ireland, it attracted over 200 women, who came in equal numbers from North and South.

This work includes conferences and joint actions by the Northern Ireland European Women's Platform and the National Women's Council of Ireland (formerly the Council for the Status of Women) over many years; a "Women's Agenda for Peace" conference by Clar na mBan in 1994; a "Women, the Framework Document and the Future" conference in 1995, organised by the Ulster People's College; a "Women, Politics and Ways Forward" conference in 1995, facilitated by the University of Ulster Centre for Research on Women; a conference arranged by the Women's Committee of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions in 1995, "Women and Political Agenda for Change". Women's centres have been active on initiatives such as the Downtown Women's Centre's projects Women into Politics and Making Women Seen and Heard. Tripartite conferences around the theme of women shaping the future have been held in Cork and Belfast, involving women from Britain as well as the North and South of Ireland. Further afield, a group calling itself Common Ground and involving women from the United States alongside women from the North and South have conferenced in both the United States and Ireland about the situation in Ireland. Studies such as Women, Community and Politics in Northern Ireland by Rooney and Woods ( 1995) and Women and Citizenship -- Power, Participation and Choice by the Women's Resource and Development Agency ( 1995) have added to the debate along with From the Margins to the Mainstream -- Working Towards Equality, Development and Peace by Hinds, Hope, and Whitaker ( 1997) and Power, Politics, Positionings -- Women in Northern Ireland by Fearon ( 1996).
