NI Century of Women

  • The Market Place Theatre & Arts Centre 9 Market Street Armagh, Northern Ireland, BT61 7BW United Kingdom (map)

Admission: £7 | BOOK HERE

2018 saw the launch of a website which highlights more than 60 women who shaped Northern Ireland in the 20th century. Leading academics Dr Myrtle Hill, Dr Margaret Ward and Lynda Walker have compiled acenturyofwomen.com which includes biographies, photos and videos of women who contributed to the cultural, economic and political life from the 1900s to the 1990s. Many of the women profiled were involved in politics in Northern Ireland and beyond. They range from former Irish President Mary McAleese, to Baroness May Blood, Professor Monica McWilliams, and Bernadette Devlin. Dr Myrtle Hill will talk about the research involved and how the site was developed in response to the invisibility of women across historical narratives.
