Rural Shared History Project – Irish Women and the Great War – 3 Nov

This talk shows the impact of the Great War on women’s everyday lives in Ireland, focusing on the years of the war and the immediate aftermath. Irish women threw themselves into the war effort, mobilising in various forms, such as nursing wounded soldiers, preparing hospital supplies and producing weapons of war. However, the war’s impact extended beyond direct mobilisation, affecting women’s household management, family relations, standard of living, working conditions and opportunities.

Dr Walsh will bring women’s wartime experiences out of history’s shadow as she examines welfare, domestic life, bereavement and employment, and reflects upon the significant impact of the Great War on Irish society

Venue: Online Via zoom
Date: Wednesday 3rd November 2021
Time: 7.00pm
