This edition of Women’s View from The Workers’ Party is an useful addition to the others in the Archive. Dating from 1983 it has a wide range of articles – one notes the recent 8th Amendment campaign. Another considers the British Labour Conference of the same year and notes that various motions were defeated which called for ‘separate and positive discrimination’ for women members of the BLP. It looks ahead to the deliberations of the Dáil Committee on Marital Breakdown. There’s also a long piece on the then recent dispute at Clery’s.
There’s an overview of women’s prisons and an article on the Pill and where next for contraception. There’s a review of the TUC Guide and Workplace Programme for Trade Unionists which covers sexual harassment in workplaces.
