Before the Report of the Commission on the Status of Women of 1972, the women of Ireland were expected to conform to policies on reproduction, marriage, divorce, employment and welfare set in 1922, at the founding of the Free State. After the 1972 report was issued to the Minister for Finance, some policies and even some attitudes changed, as reflected in a second report in 1991 and Ireland's acceptance of the European Union's policies toward women later in that decade. Finnegan (political science, Stonehill College) and Wiles (economics emeritus, Stonehill College) show through their collection of policies, proposals, declarations and reports how changes in the lives of Irish women were expected to come about. They also show through their commentary what started these changes and the actual results. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
