The Fletcher School, Tufts University

Sandy McEvoy addresss the unexplored and often overlooked topic of women’s participation in Protestant paramilitary organizations in Northern Ireland during the country's thirty year ethnic and religious conflict. Her talk is based on empirical data that she collected in Northern Ireland in 2006, during eight months of field research engaging with women members and supporters of Protestant paramilitary groups.
