What's She Doing Here? Trailblazing females

What's She Doing Here?

The Little Museum Exhibition of Irish female trailblazers

History is full of macho glory. We have all heard stories about great men who led the way in the worlds of politics, law, science, art, sport and technology. In such accounts there has been a glaring absence – women.
At a moment of great change in Irish society, a brilliant new exhibition at the Little Museum salutes trailblazing females, from historical heroines such as Eileen Gray and Hanna Sheehy-Skeffington to women of today who defy sexist attitudes to excel in industries that were traditionally dominated by men.

Speaking in advance of the exhibition launch, Minister for Culture, Heritage & the Gaeltacht Josepha Madigan said “'What's She Doing Here?' at the Little Museum of Dublin is a fitting tribute to the many women that have helped shape our country and to the many women today that are still fighting for gender equality. I would encourage people to go visit the exhibition and view the beautiful photographs and illustrations depicting the strong women of Ireland past and present."

What’s She Doing Here? is sponsored by PayPal, Brennans Bread, Sodexo, CPL, Coca Cola, Diageo and The Irish Times.  The exhibition runs from March 31st to June 10th, 2018, in The Ireland Funds Gallery at The Little Museum of Dublin, 15 St Stephen’s Green, Dublin 2.
