Manage episode 331003158 series 3296672
Imagine growing up in a time and a place where women are second class citizens, and sexuality is not only a taboo topic, but exposing the fact that you’ve been sexually active will get you socially ostracized, locked up and even possibly killed.
This is the story of Ireland’s Catholic Mother & Baby Homes that operated between the 1920’s and the 1990’s.
