Book summary

The many photographs in this beautiful book reveal with moving clarity the lives of Irishwomen between 1880, a time of great political turmoil, and 1920, when the country was coming to terms with the after math of the Great War and the Eater Rising. The photographs focus on home and family, paid work, leisure and culture, education, religion, health and welfare, and politics and war. The photographs are complimented by an informative commentary, which provides useful background information about the historical, social, and cultural aspects of the women's lives, which the photographs dramatically reveal. These images evoke as words alone could never do the everyday reality of a period of profound change for women and for Ireland [via]
