Ireland 1918

Suffrage and Citizenship in Ireland: Lecturer PROFESSOR SENIA PASETA

The Irish women’s suffrage movement was at times overshadowed by the national question and subject to internal debates about tactics and priorities. Its ability to negotiate some of these cleavages was key to its success in securing the vote, while the vibrant political context in which Irish women organised prepared them exceptionally well for political citizenship. When the vote finally came in 1918, Irish women were already well organised, politically mobilised and able to exercise considerable influence over the election campaign and its outcome.

Professor Senia Paseta is Professor of Modern History at the University of Oxford
and Co-Director of Women in the Humanities. She has published widely on a number aspects of modern Irish history including the history of education, nationalism and feminism. Her most recent research is on women’s political activism in Ireland 1880-1925.
