From the Irish Times:
President leads tributes to nun, educator, feminist and human-rights activist.
May 17th, 1929-October 5th, 2020
The distinguished historian, educator, feminist and human-rights activist, Dr Margaret MacCurtain OP, has died aged 91. Her research into and writing of what has become known as “women’s history” were pioneering and she is on record as saying: “My determination to write women into mainstream history, though resisted for years, has succeeded beyond my wildest dreams.”
