On Friday 8th March 2019, Moving Histories author Jennifer Redmond was invited to an event with President Higgins to celebrate “Women In The Sciences” for International Women’s Day at Áras an Uachtaráin.
The reception at Áras an Uachtaráin aimed to apply the 2019 theme of #BalanceforBetter to the realm of academia, highlighting the benefit of diversity in academic work and paying tribute to the work of Ireland’s female researchers. You can watch, listen to, or read President Higgins’ speech from the event on the President of Ireland website, as well as find out some more information about the event.
Below are some photos from Jennifer’s day which the team at Áras an Uachtaráin have kindly shared with us.
Moving Histories explores the story of Irish female emigrants in Britain, from their working lives to their personal relationships. Using a wide range of sources, including some previously unavailable, this book offers a new appraisal of an important, but often forgotten, group of Irish migrants.
