Sheena Wilkinson, author of Star by Star, is writing one postcard each month to a woman who influenced her, inspired her, helped her – and the postcard is her thank you. They will appear on our blog on the 14th of every month, right up to the end of the year! To follow them all, check in on our blog and on Twitter under #StarByStarThankYous
For my first #StarByStarThankYou I want to thank
HANNA SHEEHY SKEFFINGTON (1877-1946)
You’re famous for your feminism, especially for campaigning for the vote, and for your role in the struggle for Irish independence, but that’s only part of your story. You were also a true internationalist, and I think you’d be both saddened and encouraged by today’s world.
Thanks to women like you, women like me have a much better life, and the example of women like you helps us all to keep campaigning for a better future.
Thank you for your vision, your courage and your tenacity.
Write to us on social media or through our Contact Form to request your own postcard, and start thinking about what amazing woman you want to thank.
