‘Constance Markievicz: Feminist, Socialist and Revolutionary’ by Professor Senia Paseta
Constance Markievicz discovered radical politics through the women’s suffrage movement, and went on to become a leading socialist, feminist and republican activist in early twentieth century Ireland. Having been sentenced to death for her part in the Easter Rising of 1916, she became the first women to be elected to the House of Commons and to Dáil Éireann two years later.
Senia Paseta is Professor of Modern History and the co-Director of Women in the Humanities at the University of Oxford. Her current research is concerned with women’s political activism in modern Britain and Ireland.
