Report on the Magdalene Laundries.

I'm just catching up on the news of the recently released report on the Magdalene laundries. Frankly I'd never heard of them until Peter Mullan's film The Magdalene Sisters was released a while back, and The Washington Post religion section profiled a survivor who'd been reunited with the daughter she'd given up for adoption.

A bit of background from the BBC:

Quite a story.
