Richard B Finnegan

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

This book - now in paperback - examines Ireland's public policies, cases, and laws on women after 1922.

It looks at the policies in that were in place before 1972 and the extensive changes heralded by the 1972 Report of the Commission on the Status of Women: equal pay, employment, and social welfare. In the 1980s and 1990s, the debate shifted from the formal equality of women to issues of equity, fairness, opportunity, and participation, as emphasized by the Report of the Second Commission on the Status of Women (1993).

The constitutional issues of divorce and abortion - as well as the changes in family law, violence, education, health, and political and economic opportunity - are tracked through government reports up to 2000.
