Teatime Talks: Margaret Skinnider: A lifelong activist, teacher and feminist with Mary McAuliffe
When: Wednesday 16th December at 7pm
Where: Online via Zoom
Margaret Skinnider enters and exits the history books as the female rebel who was wounded commanding a military action in the 1916 Rising. Skinnider was a suffragette, trade union activist, socialist, and militant Irish nationalist.
She also taught at Mount Carmel school, just over the road from 14 Henrietta Street. The talk will also consider her, until now, more hidden history, her committed relationship with her lifelong partner, fellow Cumann na mBan member and feminist activist, Nóra O’Keeffe.
Mary McAuliffe is an Assistant Professor in Gender Studies at UCD and holds a PhD from the School of History and Humanities, Trinity College Dublin.
