The Government is being criticised for promising a referendum on women's place in the home, without meaningful steps to improve gender equality.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin, has confirmed a vote will take place to remove reference to mothers in the constitution.

He told the Oireachtas Committee on Gender Equality earlier this month that he couldn't commit to a timeline due to the complexity of the issue.
