Beschreibung

This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the emergence, consolidation and development of the Irish women's movement, as a social movement, in the course of the twentieth century. It seek to address several lacunae in Irish studies by illuminating the processes through which the movement and, in particular, networks of constituent organisations, came to fruition as agencies of social change. The central argument advanced is that when viewed historically, the Irish women's movement is characterised by its interconnectedness and continuity: the central tensions, themes and organising strategies of the movement connects diverse organisations and constituencies, over time and space. This book will be essential reading for those interested in Irish studies, sociology, history, women's studies, and politics.

'...a rich, detailed, and well-documented investigation of Irish women's activism...' - Karen Beckwith, American Journal of Sociology

'...Connolly has combined social movement theory with original qualitative research to provide an innovative alternative theoretical framework to the current grand narratives that dominate Irish studies, and in so doing has offered a new interpretation of how Irish society has changed and developed...essential reading for sociologists and feminists alike.' - Patricia Kachuk, University of British Columbia, Candadian Journal of Sociology Online

'...Connolly's comprehensive account of the origins, evolution and impact of the twentieth-century Irish women's movement is a welcome addition to existing scholarship.' - Catherine B.Shannon, National University of Ireland, Galway, Irish Studies Review

LINDA CONNOLLY is Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Cork, Ireland.
