The Role of Women in the Irish War of Independence

Flyer for The Role of Women in the Irish War of IndependenceThe proclamation of an independent Irish Republic at Easter 1916 opened with the statement "IRISHMEN AND IRISHWOMEN" and goes on to state "The Republic guarantees religious and civil liberty, equal rights and equal opportunities to all its citizens.. cherishing all the children of the nation equally." The first Irish constitution in 1922 guaranteed equal suffrage to women. These were remarkably progressive positions at the start of the 20th century and even more remarkable given the conservative nature of Irish society with a Catholic ethos.

The role women played during the revolutionary period (1913-1923) was central to the process of liberation.This enabled them to gain political power and prestige. Their actions gave them an undeniable and legitimate role in determining the future of Ireland. They were not playing a supportive role to the military men. Some of them fought. More of them did the dangerous work that only women could have done. Even more played their role by ensuring that the British war effort did not reduce Ireland to a chaotic and dispirited nation.

This presentation will introduce you to some of the bravest and most determined women the world has known.

We will be using Zoom for this presentation. You will need a computer, smartphone, iPad, or similar device that has a camera and audio ability.
