Wherever you live, if you’re dancing a jig and hoisting a pint of ale, consider this: just as in the United States, the U.K., Canada, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere, 1 in 5 women living in Ireland will never give birth. NotMoms in green.
And those women are speaking out, too. At sites like Childfree in Ireland and Gateway Women, Irish women without children are telling their stories and searching for women just like them. In 2012, The Atlantic revealed that the gender wage gap in Ireland is the highest in the world, with women – NotMoms, that is, leading the way.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, indeed!
