Product Information

by Monica McWilliams | 09 Nov 2021


Category: Biography, Human Rights

By the age of ten, Monica McWilliams was dispensing payouts in her granny's post office, book-keeping for her cattle-dealer father and leaving no one in any doubt that she could stand up for herself. She went on to break the mould in so many ways, as a woman, as an activist and as a politician. In this frank and fascinating memoir, she tells her extraordinary story for first time.

Now Emeritus Professor of the Transnational Justice Institute, Monica also chairs the Governing Board of the international NGO Interpeace and has worked with and for women in conflict societies including in South America and the Middle East. She is author of a number of journal articles, essays and reports on family and sexual matters; domestic violence; and human rights in Northern Ireland. This is her first book.

"Anyone interested in Ireland, ending conflicts, making lasting peace, defending human rights, women in politics and feminism will love this book." - Hillary Clinton

"As co-founder of the Northern Ireland Women's Coalition, Monica McWilliams undoubtedly played one of the most pivotal roles in the Northern Ireland peace process. This is a stunning read ... one of Ireland's greatest women activists." - Bertie Ahern
