This book deals with an aspect of Ulster History which has, until now, remained unexplored: the contribution of women. During the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries women were active in the domestic textile industry, in the campaign for equal educational rights, in nationalist and unionist politics, and in religious life. In this intriguing and highly readable collection of essays, the complexity of the female past in Ulster begins to emerge.
