Review:

"This is a very timely and engaging book for this centenary year of women first getting the vote." --Micheline Sheehy Skeffington, lecturer, activist, and granddaughter of Hanna Sheehy Skeffington

"Many battles have been won by these brave women and the unknown heroines who walked quietly alongside them. This book will inspire all its readers to play their part in creating a world that is fair, harmonious and equal." --Sabina Higgins, political activist and First Lady of Ireland

"Rocking the System is historically accurate without feeling overly educational. Each profile features a gorgeous portrait illustration by Bren Luke, which I liked in particular as the style reminded me of the images that previously appeared on old punt notes . . . The most crucial thing about Rocking the System is however, the books ability to shine the light on women who have been, for one reason or another, edited out of the larger story of Ireland's history. This book goes out of its way to show us HERSTORY . . . Books like Rocking the System are so crucial; they pay homage to those who have gone before and prepare a new generation of women who will no doubt keep rocking that system for years to come." --Ruth Concannon, Dublin City Libraries Reader in Residence
