The gay Scotswoman who fought for Ireland

How did a Scottish maths teacher end up joining a rebellion in Dublin?

The tale of Margaret Skinnider is told in the newest episode of The Irish Passport podcast. It asks how women went from being a central force in winning Irish independence, to being marginalised from power for close to a century.

The episode features interviews with historian Mary McAuliffe, broadcaster Martina Fitzgerald, politician Hazel Chu and others to explore whether 2019 will be a turning point for women in politics.
