Throughout 2016, Ireland is commemorating the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Rising. The 1916 rising was a major catalyst in Ireland's journey towards independence and the foundation of the modern Irish state.
As part of our centenary programme, the Embassy of Ireland is hosting a panel discussion and exhibition on the theme of Women in Liberation, to be held on the evening of 19th May, 2016, at the National Museum in Dar es Salaam.
Irish historian Dr Mary McAuliffe will join a panel of Tanzanian women to explore the role of women in liberation struggles and share insights from the experiences of both countries. The discussion will be accompanied by an exhibition on the lives of women in the Irish and Tanzanian liberation movements.
