    • History

In this episode, DLS co-founder Katy Derbyshire tells us about Constance Markievicz, an Irish revolutionary, suffragette, and socialist, and the first woman elected to the British parliament (although she never attended).

Con advised women to “dress suitably in short skirts and strong boots, leave your jewels in the bank and buy a revolver.” She fought in the 1916 Easter Rising, narrowly escaping a death sentence, and became the first woman cabinet minister in the Irish Republic.
