Description

Jacqui Berkeley reports on how far Northern Ireland has (or hasn't) progressed in terms of sexual equality.

A range of contributors muse on the evolution of gender roles within Northern Irish society and the challenges that women continue to face in a culture which continues to fall back on long-held gender stereotypes.

Includes an examination of the concepts of 'new man' and the 'new lad'.
