Editorial Reviews

Sheila Rowbotham
Throughout her life, Hanna faced the difficult task of balancing the claims of her feminism and her commitment to Irish independence... Margaret Ward's biography reveals her to have been a remarkable woman in her own right who established a militant suffrage movement in Ireland, supported the organisation of women workers and went on to become a significant figure in SinnFein.

Margaret Ward gives a balanced account, sifting through stories and myths.
—(The Times)

Books Ireland
A—indeed surely the—major biography of an important and interesting character... No better qualified biographer could be wanted than Margaret Ward, who has researched from family papers and other such sources.
Eithne Viney
It takes a book like this to remind us how women have been written out of mainstream Irish history. ... In this biography of Hanna Sheehy Skeffington she draws out of oblivion the history of Irish feminism in the first decades of this century, a chronicle inextricably bound to the campaign for Home Rule and the nationalist aspirations of the time.
—(Irish Times)
Booknews
This biography covers Hanna Sheehy Skeffington's transition from a fervent Catholic and a prize-winning young student to an outspoken feminist, avowed pagan, political strategist, and uncompromising Irish Republican. The author maintains that Skeffington embodies all that is best in the tradition of radical, constructive opposition, and notes her insistence on the necessity of an independent women's movement as a fundamental principle of feminism. Paper edition (unseen), $27.95. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
