Event description
Éilis Ní Dhuibhne & Evelyn Conlon discuss Women Writing in an event chaired by Mia Colleran

About this event

Why have women been treated differently, and discriminated against, in the literary world? Why has gender been a ‘problem’ in the writing, publishing, funding, and reviewing scene? And why does it matter?

Irish novelist and short story writer Éilís Ní Dhuibhne asked 21 writers who were born in mid-twentieth-century Ireland, North and South, to write about their literary lives. These women— Éilis Ní Dhuibhne, Catherine Dunne, Lia Mills, Medbh McGuckian, Evelyn Conlon, Mary O’Malley, Liz McManus, Mary O'Donnell, Moya Cannon, Celia de Freine, Mary Dorcey, Anne Devlin, Mary Rose Callaghan, Mary Morrissy, Aine Ni Ghlinn, Sophia Hillan, Ruth Carr, Cherry Smyth, Mairide Woods, Ivy Bannister, Phyl Herbert—began their writing careers in a puritanical and deeply sexist environment. They tell it like it really was, and is.

This event will be chaired by Mia Colleran.
