Feminism Backwards is part memoir, part documentary.
A founding member ofthe Irish Women's Liberation Movement (IWLM) Rosita Sweetman here gleefullyrecalls the triumphs - and the tribulations - of trying to drag a reluctant Irelandinto the 20th Century, crucially, re-appraising Chains or Change the IWLM'sfamous pamphlet, detailing what life was like for women in 1970s Ireland - appalling.
Feminism Backwards is also a howl of despair at how women have been treatedworldwide down through the centuries, and how misogyny and sexualrepression got such a stranglehold on Ireland. Having a survived a marriage break up Rosita re-found her feminismsadly buried, along with her chutzpah.
She passionately believes feminism is notabout blaming men, or pushing a few women to the top so they can be 'she-men'for the patriarchy.
It's about creating a world fit for everyone.
