Rocking the System
Twenty illustrated essays on Irish women, historical and contemporary, who have defied cultural norms, achieved great things and in some way rocked the system. The subjects include Irish women from Queen Medb to Eileen Gray, from Constance Markievicz to Sonia O’Sullivan, covering stateswomen, artists, writers, activists and rebels of all kinds.
Written by multi award-winning author and first Laureate na nÓg (Irish Children’s Laureate), Siobhán Parkinson, and illustrated by painter, printmaker, and pen and ink artist Bren Luke.
Perfect for use in schools as well as for leisure reading, this collection celebrates the role of women in Ireland’s changing society.
With a preface by Sabina Higgins, political activist and First Lady of Ireland.
