Constance Markievicz and The Fight for Irish Independence

An Irish painter and socialite, Countess Constance Markievicz's dedication to the cause and support of the poor drew both accolades and censures. She fought for suffrage, campaigned against Winston Churchill and took up arms for her cause in the Easter Rising, which would lead directly into Ireland’s fight for independence. Her life and actions are history that deserves to be remembered.
