Defending Caring and Welfare in Careless Times
VILLAGE magazine, Ireland's Current Affairs Weekly, 2-8 September 2005 by Maggie Ronayne for the Global Women’s Strike, Ireland
Some say Article 41.2 of the Constitution is sexist and should be abolished. While it is sexist to refer to work in the home as a woman’s “life” and “duty”, it would be even more sexist to obliterate the only constitutional recognition of unwaged caring work done at great personal cost by generations of women, and its vital contribution to society’s survival and welfare.
