The landslide Yes vote in the referendum on repealing the Eight Amendment on 25th May, 2018 marked a coming of age for Irish society and its attitude towards women. In a result that stunned not only Irish voters but a global audience, the Irish electorate voted overwhelmingly in favour of women’s right to access abortion in Ireland. This book tells the inside story of the Together for Yes campaign, including the drama and the tension, providing an authoritative account of a landmark campaign – in a referendum marked by misinformation from opponents to repeal – that changed Irish society forever. Together for Yes brought together individual activists and over 200 organisations from every sector of Irish society and from every county in the country.
