2pm. Sunday 8 March
From its inception in the 1860s, the movement for equality was a global one. It was fought not only by suffragettes, but also by many pioneering Irish women around the globe who made long-lasting contributions to their host societies. Emigration offered many women access to education, careers and other opportunities that may not have been available in Ireland. These women made their mark across the globe, innovating in every field and paving the way for others to follow, navigating a male-dominated society on their own terms.
Join Dr Angela Byrne, Dr Leanne McCormack, Dr Mary McAuliffe & Dr Ann Marie O’Brien in conversation on transnational Irish women and their campaigns for gender equality, here at EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum.
