Dr. Belinda Vigors
The Limerick Lady podcast interviews Dr. Belinda Vigors, a social scientist and curator of the Women of Ireland Project. An Irish woman living in the UK, Belinda became acutely aware of her ‘Irishness’ once she moved away. She has set out through the Women of Ireland Project to connect Ireland’s past to the lived experiences of Irish women today. The project explores Ireland’s culture, history and heritage, and also involves interviewing women of Ireland about how our culture has shaped them. Belinda looks to history to understand today and find answers for tomorrow.
You can listen to Irish Women, As Cutting As We Are Kind here.
Find Belinda at @womenofirelandproject on Instagram, or at her website womenofirelandproject.blog where you can also get involved in the project.
The Limerick Lady is a grassroots movement shining a spotlight on female performing artists. The aim of the Limerick Lady is to boost female visibility, encourage gender parity across the board, and encourage young women to embark on careers in typically male-dominated industries. The podcast is co-hosted by Emma Langford and Ann Blake, and recorded with support from The Limerick Post Newspaper and the Feminist Supermarket at Ormston House.
