Host Lisa Dettmer talks to feminists Katha Pollitt and Meghan Murphy about the recent vote in Ireland to legalize same sex marriage.  How is it that Ireland is now touted as in the  vanguard of progressive politics after legalizing same sex marriage while  abortion is still illegal in Ireland  except when a women’s life is in danger?   Are the rights of LGBT people and feminists in conflict ?
