Irish Feminism – An Introduction.

So, I went looking online for Irish feminists, ones who specifically address topics/subjects pertinent to Ireland.

Whether you put Irish feminists or Irish feminism into google you get the same results:

A WebsiteThe Irish Feminist Network. [1]

Which led to this blog – FEMINIST OPEN FORUM, a space for feminists to get together to share views and experiences. [2]

Which led to this postWomen and the Internet: A technology of liberation?  – No author, no date. [3]

Which I will be writing about in a separate post as the first in a series about Irish feminism.

Moving on.

A few articles.

An Academic Article. – A Feminism of Their Own? Irish Women’s History and Contemporary Irish Women’s Writing: Mary Ryan, Mary Immaculate College, Limerick: [8]

A Registered Charity. – National Women’s Council of Ireland. Registered in Ireland Nos. 241868 and 255063. Registered Charity No. CHY 11760. [9]

You might be wondering, why am I drawing attention to feminist “stuff”?  Well, because by drawing attention to something you open up dialogue about it, you might just question what it is about.

Better to drag this stuff out into the open than let it just lurk on the internet unchallenged wouldn’t you say?

Thanks for stopping by.
