2021 Book Reviews


The Women’s History Association of Ireland is dedicated to reviewing the newest literature in the area of women’s history and Irish history. In 2014 we launched a new book review section which appears on this site and is regularly updated. All time periods and themes are considered for review.

Please use the drop down menu under the “Book Reviews” tab to view the selection of reviews completed so far.

As a member of the WHAI you can suggest titles to us and we will source the book for you (you must be a current member in order to complete a review). Postgraduate students, early-career and non-academic researchers are all welcome to submit requests and complete reviews. Full guidelines will be given if you email the book review editor, Judy Bolger, at whaibookreviews@gmail.com. Reviews should be 1,000 words in length and are usually due two months after receipt of the book.  If you are publishing a book, let your publisher know to send us a review copy.
