Summary
A collection of essays which surveys both the position of women in Irish society over the past century, and the actions of the nation and the state in this relationship. This volume is unique in its historical to contemporary timespan, its equality and social justice frame and the array of themes it addresses. Beginning with new research on Constance Markievicz, the authors deal with subjects ranging from the Magdalene Laundries and symphysiotomy scandals, to abortion, human rights, the gendered order of caring, poverty, the travelling community, violence against women, the constitution and legislation, media and the arts - both in the north and south of the island. The book ends with the voices of women engaged in contemporary frontline activism. Throughout this collection, the hypocrisy of the state's treatment of its women citizens is highlighted. It also reveals how powerful and effective women and men working together have been in tackling and overcoming inequalities and injustices. -- Publisher description
