Alan Shatter said that he is setting up a review group to find an alternative wording to the language currently in the constitution.
The constitution currently refers to a woman's duties in the home, and requires the State to do whatever it can to avoid the need for women to work outside the house.
It comes after the Constitutional Convention recommended changing the constitution, which has included a reference to the woman's role in the home since 1937.
