Deeds and Words
Deeds and Words is an ongoing collaborative and archival project. It marks the one-hundred-year anniversary of women gaining partial suffrage in 1918 to full suffrage in 1922. It utilises the feminist and egalitarian ethos of the 1916 Proclamation of Independence, which proposed gender equality and universal suffrage two years before the Representation of the People Act. The project acknowledges the struggle and accomplishments, commonalities and diversity of women in the island of Ireland. It celebrates role models and is a platform for women to give an account of their position and experiences in contemporary Irish society. It is a vehicle for the voice of women to be expressed and notated a century on from gaining the right to vote.
