Between 1912 and 1922, Irish female unionists, nationalists, home rulers, republicans, socialists, Protestants, Roman Catholics, Quakers and those without religion actively contributed to the revolutionary events in Dublin, the capital city of Ireland. Whether living in the tenements or the suburbs, most Dublin women coped with everyday life. Yet, the issues of home rule, the Dublin lock-out, the outbreak of world war one, the Easter rising in 1916 and the war of independence affected their lives in a variety of ways. Points of interest in this section of the website were chosen to illustrate the complexity of women’s role in key events in Dublin’s history.
