Summary
""Quiet revolutionaries" examines the pivotal role Irish women played in the development of education, medicine and sport in one hundred years of change in their country and indeed the world in general. This book discusses women's educational attainment, their lives in secondary and third-level education, and their professional struggles. O hOgartaigh examines the experiences of teachers and the medical approaches of a significant generation of doctors, and nurses' attempts to professionalise, both in Ireland and internationally. The challenges faced by women in other professions are also discussed, particularly the few dentists, pharmacists and veterinary surgeons. The origins of women's sport in Ireland are closely examined, as are the sporting careers of women, and the sporting restrictions in place in the 1930s, '40s, and '50s. Finally, traditional views on women and paid work are entertainingly analysed. The rigorous research undertaken by O hOgartaigh in her exploration of women in heretofore male-dominated spheres is balanced by a witty and entertaining tone, and as such, Quiet Revolutionaries is a unique book on Irish women in history. Dr Margaret O hOgartaigh works at All Hallows College, Dublin City University, and is the author of "Kathleen Lynn", "Irishwoman", "Patriot", "Doctor" (2006), "Edward Hay", "Historian of 1798" (2010) and co-author of "Business Archival Sources for the Local Historian" (2010). A Fulbright Fellow at Boston College and a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Medicine in Ireland, she is a member of Crusader's Athletics Club and has represented Ireland in master's athletics"--provided by publisher
