The Women's Social and Progressive League was a women's organisation founded in Ireland in 1937 by Hanna Sheehy-Skeffington. It was committed to opposing the 1937 constitution of Ireland and any regressive consequences it would entail - it opposed articles 40, 41, and 45 concerning the status of women. Among its most prominent members were Lorna Reynolds, Mary Hayden, Mary J. Hogan, Mary Macken, Mary S. Kettle and Agnes O'Farrelly.[1][2]
