Louise Ryan, Professor of Sociology at the University of Sheffield, talks about how The Irish Citizen newspaper provides an important insight into the campaigns and concerns of the Irish suffrage movement. The paper was self-consciously feminist, and covered major events of this tumultuous period, (war, nationalism, 1916 Rising), as well as addressing taboo subjects like domestic violence. Louise’s book brings together extracts from the paper with analysis and fascinating commentary.
