Egg Money is the story of a generation of women who worked to improve life in rural Ireland; countrywomen often stereotyped and overlooked in their roles as mothers, homemakers and farmer’s wives; women who were not initially considered part of the women’s movement. These women, now aged between 70 and 90, tell their stories, and when woven together, highlight a very different story than the one expected. These women played a vital role in the development of rural Ireland. They were activists, lobbyists, and business women with very independent means.
