  • Today is International Women's Day. Let's hear it for women everywhere, both real and wannabe real!

    The most cheering news comes from Ireland, which is to hold a referendum on removing a reference in the Irish constitution to a woman's place being in the home. About time too! This is how it's reported…

    Ireland is to hold a referendum to establish gender equality and to remove a constitutional reference to a woman’s place being in the home.

    The government announcement – timed to coincide with International Women’s Day – said the referendum in November will seek to amend articles 40 and 41 of the 1937 constitution, including this reference: “By her life within the home, woman gives to the state a support without which the common good cannot be achieved.”
