This work is a collection of essays revealing the tremendous diversity of women's experiences in Ireland's past. It draws together key articles published in the fields of Irish women's history and women's studies since the 1980s, including contributions from Ireland, North and South, England, USA, Canada and Australia. The text explores the lives of ordinary Irish women since 1800, looking at the key themes of: historiography and the development of, and writing of, women's history in Ireland; politics and the variety of political activities undertaken by women including suffrage, nationalism and unionism; health and sexuality revealing hidden histories of sexual activity, mental illness and attempts to control fertility; religion and the experiences of catholic nuns, protestant evangelicals and salvationists; emigration and the pattern of female migration to USA, Britain and Australia; and work including both paid and unpaid employment inside and outside the home.
