The Easter Rebellion of 1916 was a watershed in Irish history, setting in motion a chain of events which culminated in the foundation of the modern Irish state. In the century since the rising, many books have been written about the Rising, but for years the role of women participants in 1916 was without exception underplayed. Originally published in 1996, 'When History Was Made: The Women of 1916' is a ground-breaking study - the first book to address in depth the role played by Irish women in this historic event. Author and historian Ruth Taillon names almost 200 women and gives – often in their own words – the details of their involvement, taking the Women of 1916 out of the footnotes of Irish history. Fascinating in its detail and in the way that the author uses the first-person narratives from the women themselves, it brings to life the passion and struggle of young women involved in political activism and takes us through a whole new story of Ireland's early fight to free itself from the colonial rule of great Britain. 3
