Professor Azrini Wahidin, Irish Republican Women
This talk discussed women’s involvement in the Irish Republican Army, political protest and the prison experience in Northern Ireland. Through the voices of female and male combatants, Wahidin demonstrated that women remained marginal in the examination of imprisonment during the Conflict and in the negotiated peace process. However, as the book shows, women performed a number of roles in war and peace that placed constructions of femininity in dissent.
Azrini Wahidin is the author of Ex-combatants, Gender and the Peace Process in Northern Ireland: Women, the Prison Experience and Political Protest. She is now Associate Dean at Teesside University.
