This talk will look at the impact of the First World War on women's lives, the reaction of the suffrage movement to war and women's role in the Easter Rising, a watershed moment for women's fight for equality.

Dr Margaret Ward has authored a number of books on women’s history including Unmanageable Revolutionaries: Women and Irish Nationalism (1995) and a biography of Hanna Sheehy Skeffington (1997). A former Director of the Women’s Resource and Development Agency, she is currently a Visiting Fellow in Irish history at Queen’s University Belfast, a trustee of National Museums Northern Ireland and a board member of Libraries NI.

This event is organised by NMNI.
