Leaving the women out — 2 Comments

  1. Very good wishes to Katherine.

    I was trying to do some research the other day about the history of the liturgy of the Church of Ireland and came across an article on the history of women’s ordination in Ireland. I had not previously known Katherine was the first woman to be ordained here and was surprised and delighted to learn it from this article. Some historians do pay attention to women.

  2. Hi Dot,

    The link is only open to those who have a TCD password.

    You’re right. there are historians who have paid attention to women, but I suspect that up until the past four decades omission rather than inclusion has been the norm.
