‘Amazing history, very pertinent now.’
Margaret Atwood

‘What emanates from the huge number of images is the bravery of those who stood up against the misogyny that hemmed women and others in … an informative timeline, a vital reminder and a visual education in the waves of activism that kept coming, no matter how those who held power in Irish society attempted to stymie them.’
Una Mullaly, Irish Times
