Re: “Review: Philomena

Philomena was not in a Magdalene Laundry -- she was in an Irish mother-baby home. While similarly punitive and harsh institutions, survivors of the former recently received a State apology from Taoiseach Enda Kenny and a compensation scheme has been approved and is ready to roll out. Survivors of the latter have yet to have their testimonies heard and see their justice. There were other key differences between the two types of institutions, and much crossover between them. But considering that more than 25 children were shipped en masse to Lafayette, LA, it would be disingenuous and misleading to your local readers to suggest that the women who bore those children were eligible for a redress scheme. We're still fighting for them, but we're not there yet...
