Why Irish Women Kick Some Major Ass...Category: Announcements

Quote, Wild Irish Woman, by Marian Broderick... It was a traditional
marriage, contracted by the ancient law of Ireland, the Brehon Law, which Grace and
her people had lived [by] for 1,500 years.  According to Brehon law, women could
fight on the battlefield, keep their own name and property after marriage, drink
alcohol, be elected head of their clan -  and divorce their husbands with no
repercussions. Unqoute.
   Around 1 AD, the time of the birth of Christ, when women all over the world were
being subjected to sexist laws, women were granted these rights on the Emerald Isle. 
The above-named Grace lived in the sixteenth century, when even "civilized" nations,
such as England, were unfairly persecuting their women.  Consider the case of Anne
Boleyn, for instance.  She was charged and beheaded for adultery... but there was no
evidence.  In England at this time, women weren't even allowed to own land, unless
the were not the Queen, but the heir to the Tudor throne.  The bride of a king simply
would not do.

   Then there was Ireland, kicking some major ass in women's rites!!!

   Suck that, William Hart-Tilley!
