Abstract:

This book assessed the impact of conflict on women in 20th century Ireland, and how women responded to and influenced these conflicts. Their roles ranged from combatants, pioneers and workers, victims and survivors, prisoners, poets, playwrights and artists. Drawing on original research from a range of international scholars, this book considers women and war through a myriad of themes- militarism, morality, political activism and motherhood- through the lens of a variety of sources. Whatever their socio-economic or political background, a common thread of engagement links Irish women in wartime as they challenged and changed societies subsumed by hostilities.
