What women could not do in Ireland in 1970

An interesting piece from the Galway Advertiser describes ten rights which were won by Irish women in the 1970s - it starts each point with a description of what a woman could not do that year, and then explains how the law subsequently changed.

Read the article at www.advertiser.ie/galway/article/57301/ten-things-an-irish-woman-could-not-do-in-1970-and-be-prepared-to-cringe

You will cringe...

My new book, Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet, is now available from Pen and Sword. My next Pharos Scottish course, Scotland 1750-1850: Beyond the Old Parish Registers, starts May 15th - see http://britishgenes.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/scotland-1750-1850-beyond-oprs-starts.html. Time to smash a few brick walls...!
