Herstory is a cultural movement THAT tellS the life stories of historical, mythIC AND contemporary women.
An extraordinary discovery
In contrast to the handful of women we learn about in Irish schools, Herstory discovered that there are over one thousand remarkable women featured in the Dictionary of Irish Biography. Countless names are missing. The amnesia of women’s stories is not just an Irish problem - this is a global phenomenon.
It's time to rewrite history and the future
History censored women’s stories in the past. Today, popular culture dictates the stories deemed 'worthy' of our attention, diluting women's representation and leaving countless authentic role models in the shadows.
This is storytelling for everyone
Adopting a collaborative and experimental approach, Herstory incorporates the worlds of music, comedy, theatre, fashion, dance, photography, poetry, fine art, film and more.
Herstory is a compassionate feminist movement
Our mission is to give the public authentic female role models and a game-changing egalitarian education programme, inspiring countries around the world to start their own Herstory movements.
Join us for the International Herstory Light Festival, Ireland's new global light festival celebrating women and equality.
Created by Herstory Ireland, gifted to the World.
