‘Before Article 41.2 is deleted, let us face the honest truth about the “woman in the home”: it was never more than window-dressing’

Abolish the “woman in the home” clause in the Constitution! That seems to be the judgement of the Citizens’ Assembly. The 99-member body concluded that Article 41.2, wherein it is affirmed that “the State recognises that by her life within the home, woman gives to the State a support without which the common good cannot be achieved”, should go. The phrasing is outdated and the pledge is a hindrance to gender equality.

Fair comment. So let the people decide at a referendum.
