dublin - Ireland will once again be able to vote on a conservative rule from the Constitution through a referendum. This time it is about deleting a passage that emphasizes the importance of women for the household.

According to the Irish Government, the text part is dated. He therefore wants to remove it from the constitution, which contains several references to traditional Christian values. In the text part it says 'that the woman grants support to the state through her life in the home. 'A second passage obliges the state to' ensure that mothers are not obliged by economic necessity to work to neglect their duties in the home. '

The referendum, which will be held in November, follows a plebiscite at the end of May, with a majority voting for the liberalization of abortion. And in 2015, gay marriage was legalized in the Roman Catholic country through a referendum.
