A Formidable Force


I always felt the wave

of the women’s power was rising,
the men are destroying themselves
and we are looking on.
Maude Gonne


Maude, in the center of this photo dressed in black, was a passionate, outspoken, articulate, and relentless champion of Irish independence, human rights, and social justice. She not only championed the rights of women, she inspired them to acknowledge their outrage, find their voice, and join her in the streets. They proved a formidable force.

Change happens when women step into their power – and take to the streets.
