The Paris publishing house, Editions des femmes is publishing a Dictionnaire des femmes créatrices, under the general editorship of Béatice Didier. This dictionary will highlight female creativity in literature, visual arts and science. It will contribute to the discovery of hitherto unknown women and will form a network bringing together women from all time periods, continents, and types of creative activity. By its mere creation, this dictionary, to be published in 2011, will create links between disciplines, time, and space. I have written the section on Irish Women in Theatre, including an overview and entries on Irish women playwrights, directors, and actors.
