UCC Women's Studies hosted a successful Herstory salon on 20 March 2017.
The event was held in the relaxed surroundings of the staff common room and was fully sold out.
The salon was kindly opened by Professor Patrick O'Shea, the new president of UCC.
Dr Amy Prendergast author of Literary Salons Across Britain and Ireland in the Long Eighteenth Century(Palgrave, 2015) discussed the role of three Irish women in the world of the eighteenth century salon.
Our speakers included staff and students across the UCC Women's Studies community speaking about women past and present.
