9781856079884: Political Woman: A Memoir

Tells the story of a young middle-class mother of three, Nuala Fennell, who from her home in suburban south Dublin became part of a movement that changed Ireland's social and legislative landscape for ever. Nuala Fennell first became involved in the Women's Liberation Movement with women like June Levine and Mary Kenny, then helped to found AIM, the family support organization, in 1972. AIM campaigned for women's rights in family law, until then a very low priority for successive governments, and achieved radical changes.
