Trinity Women Graduate Association (TWG) Upcoming Events:
WOMEN’S HISTORY WALKING TOUR OF DUBLIN with historian Sarah Finnegan
Saturday 1 April 2017, 10.45 am, Meet at Front Arch, TCD (1.5 hours)
This promises to be a treat. Starting at Trinity, we’ll discuss the history of women in Irish education and, moving towards the Rosie Hackett bridge, we’ll examine the place of women in Dublin from Viking times onward, along with the importance of the river within this context and the representation of women in terms of the bridges that span it. A discussion of Rosie Hackett leads us smoothly into the next stop, Liberty Hall. There, the main topic is that of women in the 1913 Lockout, the 1916 Rising and the daily battles these women faced in order to gain the rights that had long been granted to their male counterparts.The Monto is the next topic of conversation, and following on from that the Abbey is the next natural stop on the path towards O’Connell St, along with Wynns Hotel. Following Wynns I propose we make our way up O’Connell Street to the Proclamation plaque and from there discuss commemoration and the depiction of women in Dublin while addressing the document itself as a reference. This is also the perfect point for a discussion on Clery’s, department stores, ballrooms and, turning to face the GPO, we celebrate and explore the role of women in the 1916 Rising. We’ll the move up along O’Connell street and , with a good vantage point, discuss the Rotunda hospital and healthcare for women before moving back down towards Henry Street and on our right stepping onto Moore Street to discuss the role of women in the workplace. We then, back on Henry St, tell story of Jennie Wyse Power, the Dunnes Stores strikers before making our way back towards the river where the tour concludes.
