The Irish Rebel Countess: Constance Markievicz

April 16 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

$35

Constance Gore-Booth, an aristocratic Irishwoman, studied art in London and Paris before marrying a Polish nobleman and becoming Countess Markievicz. A staunch Irish nationalist, she traded in her ball gown for an Irish rebel uniform, becoming a leader in the 1916 Easter Rising to free Ireland from British tyranny. She was the first women elected to British parliament and the first woman cabinet member of a European Government. Her life story is an epic account of shattering gender norms and demonstrating resilience in the face of overwhelming odds.
