Contesting Politics: Women in Ireland, North and South

By Yvonne Galligan; Eilís Ward et al. | Go to book overview

still intact, the women senators in particular sought to check the regression in the status of women in the new state.

In particular, women with a history of involvement in public life that predated the solidifying of the great cleavage of Irish political life were more free to criticise the shape the new state was taking. By contrast, women who were drawn into the Dáil because of their familial relationships with dead nationalist leaders remained bound by nationalist politics. Within this overarching frame, equality issues were rendered unimportant. The process of state building and the consolidating of power by the two parties, former civil war opponents, eclipsed other dimensions of politics.

The Blueshirts were a militaristic, anti-IRA movement of the 1930s that was associated with the Cumann na nGaedhael (later Fine Gael) Party and inspired also by Fascist ideology.
