  • "Nuns Don't Get Cervical Cancer": A Reproductive-Justice Approach to
           Understanding the Cervical-Cancer Prevention Crisis in Ireland

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: From 2015 to 2018 scandals surrounding the human papilloma-virus (HPV) and cervical-cancer screening in the Republic of Ireland revealed serious deficiencies in the nation's health-care system. A misinformation campaign conducted in 2015 about the HPV vaccine resulted in a sharp decline in Irish vaccination levels, and in 2018 Ireland's CervicalCheck screening program was revealed to be flawed. In the Scally Report (2018), a scoping inquiry into the problems at CervicalCheck, key informants pointed to the significant gendered failings of the Irish health-care system, noting that "there is a history of looking at women's health services as being secondary," "women and women's rights are not taken seriously," and ...

  • "We Can't Keep Painting Over Our Problems": Murals, Social Media, and
           Feminist Activism in Ireland

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On 26 July 2016 eighty protestors gathered in the space in front of Dublin's Project Arts Centre. Dressed in black "repeal" jumpers and blue face paint, the group chanted "What do we want' A woman's right to choose!" while holding up photographs of a red heart with the words "Repeal the 8th" written inside. The photos replicated a mural that was painted over the previous day. Activist Andrea Horan had commissioned popular street artist Maser to paint the pro-choice mural, but Dublin City Council announced that the artwork lacked necessary permits. Project Arts Centre director Cian O'Brien was forced to paint over the image, leaving a plain blue wall where the mural had previously resided. But this censorship could ... Read More

  • Voting on Abortion Again and Again and Again: Campaign Efforts and Effects

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On 25 May 2018 the Eighth Amendment of Bunreacht na hÉireann, the Irish Constitution, was repealed in a referendum vote, and abortion provision in Ireland was significantly liberalized as a result. Repeal had been expected. The Yes side led opinion polls during the campaign, and polls over many years indicated that attitudes to abortion had been transformed from the conservative views that dominated in the 1980s. But the size of the Yes victory and the large turnout among voters were a surprise to many.Abortion policy has assailed Irish politics for nearly four decades, and the 2018 referendum was the sixth time a question had been put to the people on aspects of abortion policy since the first referendum in 1983. ...

      Abstract: On Christmas Day 2018 a twenty-four-year-old woman, Karen McEvoy, died of suspected sepsis just one week after she had given birth to her third baby on 18 December in Dublin's Coombe Women and Children's University Hospital. The birth had appeared uncomplicated, and Karen, a fit woman, and her baby girl were discharged seemingly well on 19 December. Within two days Karen was experiencing severe back and lower abdominal pain, which was not picked up as an important symptom in a community-clinic postnatal appointment on 21 December nor again when Karen returned to the Coombe Hospital for her baby's check-up on 23 December. By then Karen was on crutches because of continuing severe pain and also exhibiting "flu-like ... Read More

           Reproductive-Justice Analysis of Storytelling in the Repeal Campaign in
           Ireland, 2012–18

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 2018 years of feminist grassroots organizing and activism culminated in a referendum on the Eighth Amendment to the Constitution of Ireland that the Irish public passed with sixty-six percent in favor of repeal. Repeal activism and the referendum result were galvanized by public outrage at the preventable death of Savita Halappanavar, an Indian-born woman living in Galway who died of septic shock after being denied a life-saving abortion while she was miscarrying. In the years since this tragic event spurred widespread activism in 2012, a number of high-profile writers, journalists, and academics have written openly about their experiences of abortion. Storytelling platforms such as In Her Shoes, The X-ile ... Read More

  • Shame and the Breastfeeding Mother in Ireland

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: There has been considerable discussion about why breastfeeding rates in Ireland are the lowest in Europe, perhaps even the lowest globally.1 Newspaper articles and blogs signal how fraught the topic has become: breastfeeding, or rather its widespread absence, is presented not just as a fact but as a crisis and a site for national self-examination. Why, ask all the newspapers, don't Irish mothers breastfeed' As medical literature and social movements in both western and developing nations argue for the benefits of breastfeeding, Ireland has witnessed a mobilization at both the national and grass-roots level to encourage mothers to nurse their babies. Lady Sabina Higgins now organizes an annual "latching-on" event to ... Read More

      Abstract: Promotional still, The 8th documentary film, 2021, directed and produced by Aideen Kane, Lucy Kennedy, Maeve O'Boyle, and Alan Maher.Crowds dominate the publicity stills used to promote the 2020 documentary The 8th about the repeal of the Eighth Amendment to the Irish Constitution (1983), which had essentially outlawed all abortions in Ireland.1 One vivid image from the celebration after the vote features a woman—Lysette Golden—elevated above the rest of those gathered; she sits on a man's shoulders, smiling and holding a banner from the "Together for Yes" movement. Golden wears a snug white crop top that has two rainbow-hued alien heads at roughly the level of her breasts, the iconic inverted-egg shape of the head ... Read More

      Abstract: This story was first published in the Irish Times on 18 May 2018, immediately prior to the referendum on the Eight Amendment, and is reprinted with permission by the author and original publisher. It has been revised here for publication in Éire-Ireland. Set in 1992 and told through the first-person perspective of a young woman who is pregnant, the story narrativizes a little-known transatlantic journeying that Irish women made to the United States in the later stages of the twentieth century. Organized by Catholic organizations, women with unplanned pregnancies were sent to stay with Catholic host families for the duration of their pregnancies, and after birth the babies were then subsequently adopted in the ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 2018, after the final votes had been tallied in the Republic of Ireland's successful referendum to repeal the Eighth Amendment, taoiseach Leo Varadkar tweeted, "Fantastic crowds at Dublin Castle. Remarkable day. A quiet revolution, a great act of democracy."1 Ongoing efforts to reform Ireland's restrictive abortion laws were, however, far from quiet.2 Advocacy for abortion reform long preceded the referendum and was public, visible, and often painful. Legal scholar Máiréad Enright characterizes the campaign to repeal the Eighth Amendment as inflicting harm. Reflecting on the labor of making legal change, Enright recalled, "I sat in a taxi while two women who had told their everyday abortion stories publicly wept ... Read More

      Abstract: A 1982 issue of Irish Gay News honered LGBTQ activists' participation in the annual Women's Day Celebration, emphasizing both their dedication to gay rights and their stance against the 1982 Irish abortion referendum. In discussing the critical intersections of the queer-rights movements, particularly within the context of the AIDS crisis and Irish reproductive justice, the article stated:To many gay people this campaign may seem irrelevant. We however believe that there are fundamental links between a woman's right to control her own body and the objectives of gay liberation. … It is not possible to view the fight for gay liberation in isolation from other struggles seeking the control of one's own body and ...

  • Diary: Abortion in Northern Ireland

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: "Diary: Abortion in Northern Ireland" is a nonfiction journalistic piece written by writer and editor Joanna Biggs that was originally published in the London Review of Books on 17 August 2017 and is reproduced here with permission. It provides an account of abortion illegality in Northern Ireland, capturing the tenors and restrictive sinews of the time before the 2019 lifting of restrictions in Northern Ireland. We present it here as a snapshot of this era, with one of the aims of the diary to capture some of the different discursive registers at play, including public and media representations of abortion. Biggs's piece traces the financial, physical, and mental challenges as well as the confrontations and ... Read More

      Abstract: Before the Law stands a door-keeper on guard. To this door-keeper there comes a man from the country who begs for admittance to the Law. But the door-keeper says that he cannot admit the man at the moment. The man, on reflection, asks if he will be allowed, then, to enter later. "It is possible," answers the door-keeper, "but not at this moment." Since the door leading into the Law stands open as usual and the door-keeper steps to one side, the man bends down to peer through the entrance. When the door-keepers sees that, he laughs and says: "If you are so strongly tempted, try to get in without my permission. But note I am powerful. And I am only the lowest doorkeeper. From hall to hall, keepers stand at every ... Read More

  • Gendered Silence and Misdiagnosis in the Clinical Encounter: Celia de
           Fréine's Blood Debts and the Hepatitis C Scandal in Ireland

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The history of women's health care is characterized by silenced or heavily edited episodes that have contributed to the neglect of women's bodies and minds and accordingly prevented them from receiving the best possible treatments. As Hannah Devlin has contended, this prevailing attitude toward women's health has triggered "a string of health-care scandals over several decades" in which the voices of the patients have been consistently ignored. Ireland is no exception in this respect, and its history, both past and present, is punctuated by the silencing of women's voices and bodies in the clinical encounter. The death of Savita Halappanavar in October 2012 at Galway University Hospital—where, in spite of her ... Read More

      Abstract: Celia de Fréine is a poet and playwright who writes in both the Irish and English languages. She has published nine collections of poetry and written and produced over twenty plays. We include the poem "scéal scéil" (original Irish) and "hearsay" (translated English) in this special issue as the work evocatively captures the alienations and disregard faced by many women from the health and medical systems in Ireland. This poem is from the collection Fiacha Fola, published in 2004, with the English-language version appearing in Blood Debts in 2014. The collection provides a first-person poetic account of a woman who experienced illness as a result of the Hepatitis C scandal in Ireland in which over 1,600 women ... Read More

  • Editors' Introduction: Women's Health and Reproductive Justice in Ireland

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: We began conceiving of this special issue in the heady weeks and months following the May 2018 vote to repeal the republic's antiabortion Eighth Amendment (1983). For just a moment all things seemed possible in terms of Irish women's health-care rights and realities. Even then, however, our training in reproductive justice—a framework created by American Black women encouraging us to move beyond a rights-based or legalistic framework to instead focus on intersectional access to women's bodily autonomy and the real-world contexts of reproduction (Ross, Radical Reproductive Justice; Ross, "What Is Reproductive Justice'"; Sister Song; Silliman et al.)—cautioned us against being overly optimistic. In working and living ... Read More
