The National Traveller Womens Forum (NTWF) was founded in 1988 with the aims of:

“advancing Traveller women’s rights, human rights, equality, cultural recognition, solidarity, liberation, collective action, anti-sexism, anti-racism (and) self-determination”

NTWF has since grown into an alliance of Traveller women and Traveller organisation from throughout Ireland and aims to work collectively to challenge the racism and sexism experienced by Traveller women and promote Traveller women’s rights to self-determination and the attainment of human rights and equality.
