REPEAL THE 8TH: A Once In A Generation & Historic Opportunity



“Ní Saoirse go Saoirse na mBan” is a proverb in the Irish language meaning there is no freedom until women are free. The purpose of this article is to highlight the significance of the REPEAL movement for abortion rights for women in Ireland in 2018 and to highlight how repeal is necessary for the liberation of women and societal change. Freedom is and always has been a long and hard fought struggle for Irish women.  First wave feminism created ripples here from 1860 with issues such as female education, suffrage, employment opportunities and the role of women in politics and decision-making taking centre stage. The first wave activists made crucial advancements in terms of education and by 1908 courses and degrees in all Irish universities were open to women. Significantly 2018, marks the centenary of partial suffrage for women in Ireland as those over 30 were allowed to vote  under UK Legislation. Suffrage for all women came in 1922 following the birth of the Irish Republic. Undeniably, progress had been made but greater change was necessary, hence the 60s and 70s gave rise to the second wave of Irish feminism. This agenda placed a much greater emphasis on the rights of women in terms of employment and reproduction. The Marriage Bar which forced women to leave their jobs when they got married was lifted in 1973. The Contraceptive Train of 1971 in which members of the Irish Women’s Liberation Movement defied Irish law to bring contraceptives to the Republic marked a monumental milestone in terms of reproductive rights. Yet, fast forward to 2018 and Ireland still has one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the European Union. In 1918 Irish women pressed for progress and won the right to vote and by using this precious vote in the  referendum of 2018 we now have a once in a generation opportunity to make Ireland a safer and more compassionate country for all women.
