About the piece: I am fascinated by Irish politics and feminism. Currently in Ireland, there is a feminist movement to “Repeal the 8th amendment to the constitution”. This amendment means that horrific human rights violations have occurred in the area of bodily autonomy and abortion rights; the cases of Savita Halappanavar and ‘Miss X’, to name a few.
