Abstract:

"In this new book the full range of women's contribution to the Irish nationalist movement is explored by writers whose interests range from the historical and sociological to the literary and cultural. From the little-known contribution of women to the earliest nationalist uprisings of the 1600s and 1700s, to their active participation in the republican campaigns of the twentieth century, different chapters consider the changing contexts of female militancy and the challenge this has posed to masculine images and structures." "Using a wide range of sources, including textual analysis, archives and documents, newspapers and autobiographies, interviews and action research, the authors examine sensitive and highly complex debates around women's role in situations of conflict." "This is a contribution to wider feminist debates about the gendering of nationalism, raising questions about the extent to which women's rights, demands and concerns can ever be fully accommodated within nationalist movements."--Jacket.
