Article 41.2.1 : A Woman’s Place in Modern Ireland Workshops

The Citizens Assembly has overwhelming voted in favour of amending Article 41.2.1 of the Irish Constitution (only 11% voted in favour of its retention).

Article 41.2.1 states – ‘that by her life within the home, woman gives to the State a support without which the common good cannot be achieved. It also states that because of this primary function as homemakers, mothers ‘shall not be obliged by economic necessity to engage in labour to the neglect of their duties in the home.’

Article 41.2.1: A Woman’s Place in Modern Ireland will be a series of free evening workshops for women starting every Thursday from September until December in Manorhamilton with a presentation and performance of work on December 7th. The first workshop takes place Thursday 5th of September at 6pm in The Glens Centre, New Line, Manorhamilton, Co. Leitrim. Workshops every Thursday at 6pm for the 5th September to 5th of December
