Women have always had a strong influence in shaping a nation’s fortunes, but because their contribution has often been in the background of events historians have not always given them the prominence they deserve. Here Michael Sheane redresses the balance. Concentrating on the period from about 1840 to 1940, he shows how women have helped to shape Ulster in every sphere of life – in the home and in the workplace, in education, school reform, politics and religion.
