Women on Walls at RCSI in partnership with Accenture is a campaign that seeks to make women leaders visible through a series of commissioned portraits that will create a lasting cultural legacy for Ireland.
These portraits will recognise the pioneering achievements of eight extraordinary women and enhance the visibility of historical female leaders in healthcare. The portraits are now hanging in the Board Room of RCSI on St Stephen’s Green in Dublin’s city centre.
But who were these women? What was their story?
Each of these eight women faced challenges, hardships and prominent decisions in their career during a time in Ireland when women were expected to stay at home. They were pioneers, determined and focused to raise standards in both Irish and international health care and they dedicated their lives fighting for others.
Here are their stories.
