Overview

This collection of fourteen new essays by scholars of literature, theatre, historiography, psychology and political science explores aspects of feminism in Ireland four decades after the founding of the Irish Women's Liberation Movement. The tremendous changes to the social, economic, educational and personal lives of Irish women are discussed and analyzed here in terms of the everyday performance of being a woman in Ireland, and the everyday negotiation of gender roles and expectations in Irish society in the twenty-first century. The essays address such disparate areas as the visibility of women practitioners in the 2011 Dublin Theatre Festival; stand-up comedy; dramatic representations of gender and sexuality; gender and the iconography of the nation; women and publishing; motherhood; activism; and reproductive rights. This collection speaks to national issues that continue to concern women around the globe.
