RTÉ's No Country for Women had the nation's viewers utterly gripped last night

A must-watch.

LAST NIGHT,  RTÉ One aired the first part of a two-part documentary series which examined the lives of Irish women over the course of the last century.

Anne Roper’s No Country for Women: A Woman’s Place focussed on the discriminatory laws faced by the nation’s women in the wake of  achieving the vote 100 years ago.

The programme sought to establish just how much has changed for women in Ireland since the suffragette movement, with attention on religious, legal and cultural influence.

And it’s safe to say that viewers were profoundly impacted by the stories shared on last night’s episode.

Taking to Twitter both during the broadcast and in the hours that followed, viewers heaped praise upon its creators, and urged those who had yet to watch the first episode to catch up in time for tonight’s.

Yes, it’s tough viewing, but for the vast majority who tuned in last night, it’s must-see television at its most powerful.
