The development of the peace process continues to necessitate new directions in addressing the social and political problems of Northern Ireland. In bringing together the issues of gender and religious inequality this book offers a new perspective on women's rights, contemporary political issues and questions of civil rights. Women Divided argues that religious and political sectarianism in Northern Ireland has worked to subordinate women. An historical review is followed by an analysis of the contemporary scene - state, market (particularly employment patterns), family and church, and the role of women's movements. The book concludes with an in-depth critique of the current peace process and its implications for women's rights in Northern Ireland.
