The Magdalene Laundry

Christy Moore singing Joni Mitchell's The Magdalene Laundry.

Last night I watched The Magdalene Sisters (2002) and the accompanying documentary Sex in a Cold Climate. Both were about a terrible period in recent Irish history when young women and girls were confined for years, even lifetimes, and forced to perform hard labor for the sins of being sexually active or victims of rape or merely pretty.
