A historical review is followed by an analysis of the contemporary scene -- state, market, family and church -- and the role of women's movements. The book concludes with an in-depth critique of the peace process and its implications for women's rights in Northern Ireland, arguing that women's rights must be a central element in any agenda for reconciliation.
