The Dead Ladies Show is a series of entertaining and inspiring talks about women who achieved amazing things against all odds, presented live on stage in Berlin at ACUD. This podcast is based on that series. In this episode, Katy Derbyshire tells us about Constance Markievicz. She was an Irish revolutionary, suffragette, and socialist, and the first woman elected to the British parliament (although she never attended). From a landowning background, she became a landscape painter and socialized with Dublin’s intellectuals before joining Sinn Féin and the Daughters of Ireland, attending her first meeting in a ball-gown and tiara. Later, though, she advised women to “dress suitably in short skirts and strong boots, leave your jewels in the bank and buy a revolver.” Markievicz fought in the 1916 Easter Rising, narrowly escaping a death sentence, and became the first woman cabinet minister in the Irish Republic.
