Abstract

This article considers the portrayal of Irish women and alcohol during the First World War in the national press. It argues that the press castigated women for drinking because it conflicted with conservative beliefs about women's roles, which dictated that women should remain in the home and be primarily concerned with motherhood. This article argues that women who in their everyday lives consumed alcohol challenged traditional norms of domesticity and femininity. It also re-examines press polemic about separation women and suggests that this was not consistently or entirely negative. [WorldCat]
