Feminism Backwards


Feminism Backwards is part memoir, part documentary. A founding member ofthe Irish Women’s Liberation Movement (IWLM) Rosita Sweetman here gleefullyrecalls the triumphs – and the tribulations – of trying to drag a reluctant Irelandinto the 20th Century, crucially, re-appraising Chains or Change the IWLM’sfamous pamphlet, detailing what life was like for women in 1970s Ireland – appalling. Feminism Backwards is also a howl of despair at how women have been treatedworldwide down through the centuries, and how misogyny and sexualrepression got such a stranglehold on Ireland.
