Ten things an Irish woman could not do in 1970 (and be prepared to cringe...)

1 Keep her job in the public service or a bank when she got married
2 Sit on a jury
3 Buy contraceptives
4 Drink a pint in a pub
5 Collect her children's allowance
6 Get a barring order against a violent partner
7 Live securely in her family home
8 Refuse to have sex with her husband
9 Choose her official place of domicile
10 Get the same rate for a job as a man

And to think these laws were still in place AFTER the swinging 60’s and I had my discotheques in full swing then!!!!!
