Women in DublinDoing their Bit: Irish Women and First World War

Exhibition on display at Dublin City Library and Archive, March to April 2018

From working in munitions factories, V.A.D. nursing, supporting the war effort through charitable works, and leading the anti-conscription movement, World War 1 led to a multitude of different experiences for Irish women. This new exhibition draws on the collections of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers Association Archive and other material held at Dublin City Library and Archive to explore different aspects of these experiences and how they were impacted by class, religion and political persuasion.
