A talk will take place at the Banqueting Hall in Belfast City Hall on the topic of Irish pacifist women during the First World War. 

Dr Myrtle Hill and Dr Margaret Ward will explore the work of Irishwomen from across the island who argued against involvement in the Great War and who united with the international suffrage movement in order to seek a peaceful resolution to the conflict across Europe. 

They will focus on debates within the suffrage movement as well as highlighting the ground-breaking initiative of the Women's Peace Congress in The Hague in April 1915.

The event is free to attend but booking is essential. Contact the Good Relations Unit on 028 9027 0663 to register. 

The event begins with light refreshments at 6.30pm.
