@jesskellynt Surrounded by idiots. Made me laugh so much realising things I do 😆 Has also been quite helpful analysing why things can go wrong in so many circumstances! (The back of the book descriptor continues “…and make sure you’re not the idiot.”) – source

The making of inequality in the Irish Free State, 1922–37
Women, power and gender ideology
Explore how specific pieces of legislation led to inequality in Ireland from the time of the Proclamation of 1916 to the Constitution of 1937, which restricted women's rights. This book analyzes gender ideology and the roles of women in this journey towards an unequal state while examining how women's citizenship was conceptualized, and how patriarchy, the Catholic church, and conservative ideals played a role. Discover how this unfinished revolution sparked a feminist movement that contributed to an evolving, democratic state.
The current conversations around maternity leave for TDs, senators & councillors and how “appropriate” a tampon ad might be reminds me of how, from the beginning, our state sought to keep women out of political & public life.Highly recommend this book tracking inequality 1922-37. – source
