about this item

At 7:20pm on May 23, 2015, in the courtyard of Ireland's Dublin Castle, the country truly became a nation of equals. Ireland Says Yes is the fast-paced narrative account of all the drama and excitement, as well as highs and lows of the last 100 days, of the extraordinary campaign for a "Yes" vote in the 2015 Marriage Equality Referendum. Those who led the Yes Equality campaign tell the inside story of how the referendum was won, and how Ireland's two principal gay and lesbian rights organizations put together the most effective and successful civic society campaign ever launched in Irish politics. As well as a drama-packed chronological account of how the Yes campaign was executed, the book explores how social media mobilized a new generation of voters to the polls and how political parties, student unions, and youth groups coordinated their efforts to deliver one of the most historic referendum results in Irish political history. *** Librarians: ebook available [Subject: Irish Studies, Politics, Sexual Minority Studies, Gender Studies, Sociology]
