Members of the Constitutional Convention will vote tomorrow on whether to alter article 41.2 of the Constitution, which deals with the role of women in the home.

The Convention, which is meeting in Dublin this weekend, is also discussing the participation of women in public life and politics.

It is the second meeting of the convention, which last month voted in favour of lowering the voting age to 16, but opposed reducing the Presidential term.
