Women’s Voices in Ireland was an interdisciplinary conference which offered an opportunity to listen to voices of the past and learn to express, and listen to the voices of women today. The event was directed by Dr Maeve O’Riordan, coordinator of the MA in Women’s Studies at UCC. The conference involved a combination of parallel sessions, film screenings, performance, plenaries and workshops and was kindly facilitated by Irish Research Council New Foundations funding.
