Montrealers, who are interested in women studies, can enroll in Concordia University for a degree in women studies or take some individual classes. The Simone de Beauvoir Institute is renowned.

Female Irish Artists

The week in women’s issues, we are going to be looking at some very talented women artists around the world.

Eleanor McEvoy might not be a household name in Montreal; she is known and respected by the Irish community of Montreal.

McEvoy is Ireland’s most contemporary singing artist. She began her passion of music at the age of four by playing the piano and by eight she was onto the violin. Her life was surrounded by music; she studied music at Trinity College during the day and worked at bars and “pit orchestras” at night.” She obtained her masters degree, moved on to New York, and began at her career at the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra where she stayed for four years.
