2 Barnes Monica 10 Ten Dublin Women.
Dublin Women's Commemoration and Celebration Committee. 1991 First Edition Original Wraps Very Good + Signed by Author
The stories of 10 Dublin women, Sara Allgood, Maggie Barrett, Louie Bennett, Kathleen Clarke, Rosie Hackett, Mary Hayden, Mary Lear, Kathleen Lynn, Mary McCarthy and Hanna Sheehy-Skeffington. Signed on the title page by Monica Barnes. Putting women back into Irish history is a challenging task. For many women, the feeling is that they have no history, or even more poignantly, that it is better not to linger on the absence of having no history of onneself, or of one's group. The stories of Ten Dublin Woman are not only a contribution to Dublin European City of Culture, 1991, but an acknowledgement of the women of Dublin who lived, loved, worked and walked the streets of the city. The struggles and successes of these ten women reflect the experience of tens of thousands of women - each with her own story yet to be acknowledged and recorded. They will provide a broad and colourful map of powerful role models for today's women.
