Heroines of the Easter Rising 1916
Discover the women who were crucial to the success of what the Irish novelist, Liam O’Flaherty described as “the most important event in all of Irish history” – the Easter Rising of 1916 when the Irish Republic was proclaimed in the heart of Dublin and a revolution ensued that was brutally repressed by the British army. We will study the lives of several Irish women who committed their efforts and lives to the Irish Rebellion, Women’s Suffrage, and Social Reform. This three-session class will examine the lives of Countess Markievicz, Maude Gonne, Grace Gifford, Kathleen Clarke, and other Heroines. They lead thousands of Irish women in support of the founding of an Irish Nation and greater rights for Irish women.
