It is worth reminding people that while our country has a long way to go to realise the ideals of 1916 we are lucky to live in a democracy whereby we ourselves can vote in free and independent elections.
Our personal and political freedoms and relatively comfortable lifestyles are a far cry from what existed in Ireland as late as the 1980s.
Certainly the lives of women greatly improved thanks to legislation.
