Hello, and welcome to our course about the lives of Irish women in Ireland throughout the past few generations. We'll focus on a number of important periods in the lives of Women in Irish society, and how their experiences shaped the country, past and present.

We'll also compare these experiences with Women from the U.S. and how each others activism and experiences led to a new political and cultural landscape for both countries.
