Description

The Irish woman is looked at in all her activities, domestic, political and religious following the Reformation, military conquest, land settlement and the impact of the Enlightenment and the French and American revolutions. 21 specialists from Ireland, Britain and America look at the period of Irish history from 1500 to 1800. The book looks at the endurance of Irish women during this time, as prodigal child-bearers, compares the opportunities which Catholicism and Protestantism offered a woman, discusses the Irish woman's experience of childbirth and assesses the advantages and disadvantages of gaelic law for women. Prejudices against women in the medical textbooks of the time and women's experience od education are also covered.show more
