Project Description

Women – Wives – Widows

Mary Kenny Papers


The formation of the Irish Women’s Liberation Movement (IWLM) in 1971 followed many years of new female journalism in Ireland which covered issues of real importance to women rather than the traditional formula of cooking and shopping tips. The IWLM published its manifesto ‘Chains or Change’ in 1971 and from then on led the charge in highlighting issues such as unequal pay and the patriarchal nature of Irish society.
