Rose Comiskey, Against the Tide

 Against the tide- Images from the 1980s Irish Women’s Movement, is a photographic record of the women’s protest movement in Ireland in the 1980s. The passing of the 1982 amendment to the Irish Constitution introduced a ban on abortion and divided Irish society. Rose Comiskey documented many of the protests, marches and campaigns during this period. The photographs speak of a time of frustration but also bear witness to the spirit and determination of the women who fought for these fundamental rights.
