DUBLIN: Hanna Sheehy Skeffington & the Cause of Women’s Suffrage

VENUE: EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum, The Chq Building, Custom House Quay, Dublin 1.

DATE: Saturday 6th January at 2pm

2018 marks the centenary of women’s suffrage in Ireland. At the very heart of the Irish suffragette movement was the remarkable Hanna Sheehy Skeffington. Suffragette, republican, hunger striker & industrial activist she holds a unique position in Irish history. In collaboration with Herstory Ireland the museum is delighted to have Dr Micheline Sheehy Skeffington; the granddaughter of Hanna and Francis; speak on the central role played by her grandmother within the Irish Suffragette movement. She will also discuss Hanna's landmark 1917 US lecture tour during which she spoke at over 250 venues including a sell-out Carnegie Hall and her own account of her time following in Hanna footsteps.

EPIC Museum will also be illuminating the CHQ building in orange and pink, the #IlluminateHerstory festival colours.
