Ireland’s Forgotten Women

Click above to read article

What was done to the young ladies who were sent to the laundries was inexcusable.  I knew about the laundries but never heard about the connection to Hasbro before.  These were women of faith who were so mistreated by their own church.  Many clung to their faith and their church despite this.  If you watch the films “Philomena” (2013) and “The Magdelene Sisters” (2002) you can learn a bit about what happened to them.

One must question which is more evil: a young woman who becomes pregnant outside of wedlock or an authority figure of the church forcing teenaged girls into years of hard labor and then separating them from their babies for the sake of profit?
