The EPIC Emigration Museum Is Hosting An Event For Women’s Day

There’s a brilliant line-up of events planned for this Sunday.

EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum has revealed quite the schedule of events for International Women’s Day in Dublin – all based on the idea that “an equal world is an enabled world”.

Organisers of the event believe that one of the most effective ways people can advocate a gender-equal world is by celebrating the powerful ladies who have helped to shape Irish history.

A host of specially curated tours will run at 11am, 1pm and 3pm on Sunday, March 8th to share stories of pioneering Irish women around the globe – each of which forms the basis of the RTE series Herstory: Ireland’s EPIC Women that airs on Monday nights at 8:30pm.

Throughout each 45-minute long tour, visitors will be enlightened to the lives and legacies of 21 Irish diaspora women. ach of these women have left an indelible mark on history and this fact will be celebrated. Visitors will be introduced to characters such as Mother Jones, who fought for worker’s rights in 19th and 20th century New York, and Mary Lee, one of the foremost campaigners for women’s suffrage in Australia.

There will also be an International Women’s Day panel discussion at 2pm. Led by the historian Dr Angela Byrne, it will focus on transnational Irish women and their campaigns for gender equality.

The movement for equality has been a global one since its humble beginnings in the mid 19th century; fought not only by suffragettes but also by many revolutionary Irish women around the globe who made long-lasting contributions to their respective societies.

Other guest speakers for this Women’s Day in Dublin include Dr Leanne McCormack, Dr Ebun Joseph and Dr Ann Marie O’Brien.

Tickets must be pre-booked and include a specially curated tour of the museum as well as time to explore the museum at your own leisure.
