Charitable Colleens or Voracious Viragoes: The Ladies’ Land League in America
Central Michigan University history professor Tara McCarthy, Ph.D., recounts how participation in the Land League, a short-lived but popular agitation for land reform in Ireland, was a unifying factor in the Irish-American community, allowing women to transcend traditional gender roles in the name of service and patriotism. This presentation is part of a series of programs, The Gilded Age to the Great War: America at the Turn of the Century.
