Radicals and Widows:
Revolutionary Irish Women in America
Tuesday, May 25th at 7:30 pm EST
The Irish Cultural Centre of New England presents Radicals and Widows: Revolutionary Irish Women in America, an online Zoom lecture with Dr. Elizabeth Stack, the Executive Director of the Irish American Heritage Museum in Albany, NY.
This lecture will focus on some of the radical women who visited America to highlight the struggle for independence in Ireland. Constance Markievicz, Muriel and Mary McSwiney, Margaret Skinnider, and Hannah Sheehy Skeffington are just some of the women Dr. Stack will discuss. She will highlight the activities of these women, who went on lecture tours across the country, raising funds and goodwill for the Irish cause. This lecture is to celebrate Mná 100 which is an exhibition designed to foster a richer understanding and appreciation for the important role of women in shaping our journey towards independence and self-determination.
This event is open to all that are interested.
