Book launch "Feminist Identity Development and Activism in Revolutionary Movements", March 27

Dr Theresa O'Keefe's book Feminist Identity Development and Activism in Revolutionary Movements will be launched at 8 pm in Dublin on the evening of the 27th March, 2014.

The book documents how and why women became active in the armed Irish republican movement including an examination of their roles within the IRA. Based on personal interviews, it explores the ways in which republican activism fostered feminism in many women and how this newfound 'republican feminism' was positioned relative to the broader women's movement in the north of Ireland.

The book will be launched in Dublin by Brid Connolly of the Department of Adult and Community Education and is supported by the Department of Sociology.

DJ Bambina will be on the decks.

Update: Venue the Grand Social, 35 Lower Liffey St., Dublin 1.
