Women in Ireland have never had it so good. I'm not saying we can't have it better, but in the whole of Irish history there's never been a better time than now to be a woman.

RTÉ's recent series 'The Big Picture - A Woman's World' examined what it is to be a woman in Ireland in 2018. But too often when we talk about women and women's issues, we only focus on the negative. It's even worse if you go online as we seem to be increasingly shaped by social media, our new, enabling, worst friend.
