An exhibition exploring 100 years of women’s participation in Irish politics and public life has opened at the Main Guard in Clonmel, County Tipperary.
Mná 100 shines a light on the influence that women have had on the formation of our modern-day State, while raising awareness of their substantial contribution to Irish public service.
The exhibition tells the stories of very familiar and less well-known women, who have contributed significantly to Irish political and public life over the past century – and of the challenges they faced and the obstacles they overcame.
While politics is a major feature of the exhibition, it also showcases how Irish society changed throughout the twentieth century, and how this gradually opened up opportunities for women to participate in public life in Ireland.
Mná 100 is available to view until 23rd September.
