On Friday 9 and Saturday 10 June 2017 Women’s Studies at UCC  hosted a weekend festival to explore the theme of women’s voices in Ireland. Voices can be expressed in a multitude of ways and the festival included activism, history drama, film, music and poetry and other expressions of the female voice, as well as analysis of that voice through the lens of history, sociology, literature, philosophy, and politics. It involved contributions from activists and scholars, and performances related to women’s voices in Ireland from the Irish revolution to the present day.

The event took place in UCC with extra activities in the Farmgate Café on Friday evening, a film screening on Saturday night and a walking tour to view the Unveiled Horizons exhibition at the Port of Cork on Sunday morning. This event was funded by the Irish Research Council New Foundations Scheme.
