ANONYMOUS WAS A WOMAN

Linen Hall Library 

12 April — 31 May 2019

Anonymous Was A Woman charts the key events that have contributed to female equality and citizenship, in Ireland and Northern Ireland. Since the first female members of the Linen Hall Library in 1792, to the first woman holding the office of First Minister of Northern Ireland in 2016, there has been a major shift in women’s role in society. In the main, this has been achieved by the acquisition of rights for women through legislation and by the achievements of female pioneers. For many, the struggle continues to this day. 

A timeline of female firsts makes its way up through the library, detailing moments that have informed the journey for women in Ireland. Zones on each floor explore some of the firsts in education, work and politics. The exhibition makes use of the library’s extensive collections and archive and will encourage you to explore more.
