VILLAGE magazine, Ireland's Current Affairs Weekly, 2-8 September 2005 by Maggie Ronayne for the Global Women’s Strike, Ireland
Some say Article 41.2 of the Constitution is sexist and should be abolished. While it is sexist to refer to work in the home as a woman’s “life” and “duty”, it would be even more sexist to obliterate the only constitutional recognition of unwaged caring work done at great personal cost by generations of women, and its vital contribution to society’s survival and welfare.

Madam, - Margaret Gowen ("Archaeology in Ireland can be proud of its standards", July 22nd)) was responding to the latest protest from professionals internationally against the Market's domination ("Archaeology needs to recover its core principles and ethics", July 15th). The general public understands that to be "market-led", as Ms Gowen justifies, is to undermine a "deep and genuine interest" in principles and public accountability.
