  • Overview

    After the 1916 Rising, seventy-seven women were held prisoner in Kilmainham for their part in the rebellion, and at the height of the Civil War in 1923 over three-hundred women, aged between twelve and seventy, were imprisoned there. Made to commemorate the 80th Anniversary of the internment of these women this film tells the story of the fight for national independence, from the 1916 rising, through to the War of Independence, the Civil War and the struggle for the rights of workers and votes for women. With amazing historic film footage, it includes the original voices of Teresa O'Carroll, Maud Gonne McBride, Helena Moloney, Nora Connolly-O'Brien, Louise Gavan Duffy, Margaret Skinnider, Sighle Humphries, Maire Comerford, Nora O'Connor.
