@maireadenright and others tweet about a new report from the Justice for Magdalenes advocacy group.

41.3% of those who entered the laundry before 1922 and remained thereafter, died behind laundry walls and never saw the outside world again.

Heart-breaking, sickening, and terrifying read. The press release for the report is here (pdf). The report itself is here (pdf).

Picture:

There are 51 names inscribed on this Magdalene grave. NONE of them are buried here. http://t.co/2R1U0fxNML pic.twitter.com/3YjVGtJW6n>
