Sherin and Rachel Hughes, dynamic cousins and co-founders of a transformative movement, share an inspiring journey of turning a simple idea into a powerful force for change. United by a vision to create a space where women could come together, empower one another, and provide unwavering support, these two remarkable individuals have left an indelible mark on the landscape of female empowerment in Ireland.

What began as a casual conversation between cousins has blossomed into a remarkable initiative known as the “Sister Sheds” – a network of 22 empowering communities spread across Ireland. The Sister Sheds are not just physical spaces; they are vibrant hubs of connection, resilience, and empowerment, embodying the strength that arises when women come together.

Sherin and Rachel’s unwavering passion and dedication have fuelled the growth of this movement, providing women across Ireland with a platform to share experiences, overcome challenges, and collectively strive for a better future. Their commitment to fostering a sense of community has resulted in a profound impact, creating a ripple effect that extends far beyond the bounds of their original idea.

In recognition of their outstanding efforts, Sherin and Rachel Hughes achieved the prestigious status of a registered charity 18th December 2023, marking a significant milestone in their mission to uplift and transform the lives of women in Ireland. Their journey serves as a beacon of inspiration for those who believe in the power of unity and collective action.

As speakers, Sherin and Rachel bring their infectious enthusiasm and wealth of experience to the stage, sharing the story of how a simple idea can evolve into a nationwide movement for positive change. Their message is clear: when women support each other, incredible things happen.
