On Wednesday 8 March 2017, as part of International Women’s Day, the National Library of Ireland presented a lecture by Dr Fionnuala Walsh (TCD) on ‘Irishwomen and the Great War, 1914-18’. The lecture will examine women’s mobilisation to support the war effort, their role on the Irish ‘Home Front’, and also their politicisation in a world at war. The lecture also briefly looked at the granting of female suffrage in 1918 and questioned whether the war had any lasting emancipatory effect for Irishwomen.
The lecture will take place in the National Library of Ireland, Kildare St, Dublin 2, at 7pm.
