ILLUSTRATED TALK: Constance de Markievicz (1868-1927)

August 11, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm UTC+0

Free

As part of the Modern Irishwomen lecture series, historian and author, Sinéad McCoole explores the life and legacy of the revolutionary nationalist, suffragette and politician Constance de Markievicz (1868-1927). Having had her death sentence commuted following the Easter Rising, she later became the first woman elected to the British House of Commons.

Modern Irishwomen Lecture Series

1918 was a landmark year for women in Ireland and Britain, with legislation beginning the process of their inclusion in politics. Famously, in December 1918, Constance de Markievicz became the first women elected to the British House of Commons, only to abstain from taking her seat as a member of Sinn Féin. To mark the centenary of this pivotal year in women’s history, Galway City Museum is hosting a series of monthly lectures – curated Dr James Curry and supported by the Moore Institute, NUIG – on Markievicz and seven other ‘Modern Irishwomen’.
