The women in the history of Ireland have proven themselves to be uniquely influential in their time, and still have a notable relevance in society today. DBF are proud to present the work of a generation of inspiring women: True: Stories About Ireland’s Iconic Women (Poolbeg Press) by Martina Devlin; Nano Nagle: The Life and the Legacy (Irish Academic Press) by Deirdre Raftery; Bold, Brilliant and Bad: Irish Women From History (The O’Brien Press) by Marian Broderick; Hanna Sheehy Skeffington: Suffragette and Sinn Féiner: Her Memoirs and Political Writings (UCD Press) and Irish Women and the Vote (Irish Academic Press) by Margaret Ward; and Markievicz – A Most Outrageous Rebel (Merrion Press) by Lindie Naughton. Leading the discussion will be editor, lecturer and award-winning travel journalist Madeleine Keane. Together they will tackle the history of Irish women and how they can inspire modern feminist movements. Our speakers have vast experience in journalism, fiction and non-fiction literature, and a wealth of knowledge that will ensure an engaging conversation.
