'Isonomia' is the Greek word that is used for describing the equality of all citizens before the law. There will be a referendum on marriage equality on the 22nd of May in the Republic of Ireland. This historic occasion will give Irish citizens the choice to vote 'yes' or 'no' on the issue of same-sex marriage. At present, Ireland offers civil partnership for gay couples, however there are 160 statutory differences between the two. I think that Ireland has an important role to play on the global stage, if it legislation passes for same-sex civil marriage other countries could follow Irelands example and allow equal rights for all of its citizens, if the legislation is passed.
