Women in Politics and Public Life, from 1918 to 2018 – a Pop-Up Museum, explores 100 years of women’s participation in politics and public life. This exhibition shines a spotlight on the stories of very familiar and lesser-known women, who have contributed significantly to Irish political and public life over the past century – on the challenges they faced and the obstacles they overcame. It is a wonderful opportunity to encourage people of all ages to reflect upon the journey that this country has taken, particularly over the past 100 years. Told with films, interviews, interactives, objects and information panels it will stimulate discussion, debate and analysis in ongoing explorations of our history and raise awareness of the considerable work remaining to be done.
The exhibition has been curated by historian Sinéad McCoole and supported by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht as part of the Decade of Centenaries programme. It will travel to locations in Munster, Ulster and Connaught during 2019.
Open daily at the Coach House Gallery in the Dublin Castle Gardens from 10 am to 5 pm until 3 February, except for the following closures over Christmas:
CLOSED on 24 December, 25 December, 26 December 2018 and 1 January 2019.
