Primary and secondary schools in Ireland and Northern Ireland are invited to participate in a treasure hunt workshop to find lost women's stories in their families, community and the diaspora.
Students will learn about the heroines of the Northern Irish peace process and the '#FridaysForFuture' marches, inspiring each classroom to create their own heroic team to champion a cause close to their hearts.
Students will also explore progressive, egalitarian expressions of power through the fascintating life stories of the 6 trailblazers featured in the Herstory: Ireland’s EPIC Women TV series.
Teachers are introduced to the Royal Irish Academy’s Dictionary of Irish Biography - accessible for free to all schools via Scoilnet - which features the biographies of over 1000 fascinating women’s stories from across the island of Ireland.
The aim of the workshop is to instil a curiosity and value for every woman’s story.
Herstory: Ireland’s EPIC Women is a legacy project and a permanent digital educational resource that will give students and the public awe-inspiring female role models for generations to come.
