The video explores the use of images and music
which personify Ireland as a woman
in Irish culture and nationalism. It examines
the historical tensions between the development
of the Women's movement in Ireland and
the nationalist struggle against British rule.
We discover the unrecorded role of women
in Irish history and in today's divided Ireland.
Includes interviews with members of
the Cumann na mBan and IRA member Mairéad Farrel.
