Ireland is the first country in the world to extend civil marriage to same sex couples through a public vote. The book functions as a concise historical record of this momentous occasion from the establishment of an organised gay rights movement through to the ultimate referendum on marriage equality. The overwhelming positive result in the referendum marked a clear separation of church and State for possibly the first time. The yes equality campaign was so unique in style that it has spawned a social revolution, witnessed most recently with the legalisation of abortion and a less punitive regime for obtaining a divorce.

This book will appeal to those with an interest in political campaigning and structures and scholars of equality and broader social justice issues. The foreword is written by human rights activist and Senator, Ivana Bacik
