CELTIC MEDIA FESTIVAL
4 - 6 JUNE
No Country for Women is a landmark series exploring Irish women’s lives since achieving the vote 100 years ago. We meet Irish women whose lives collided with discriminatory legislation and they learn how their contemporary struggles have echoes in recent history. The series examines how a new country founded on a vision of equality, created laws that benefitted men over women. It also looks at the long-term legacy of a century of government, legal and religious control over women’s lives. Can it be argued that, for much of its first 100 years, Ireland was in fact, No Country For Women?
