Do Penance or Perish: A Study of Magdalen Asylums in Ireland

Frances Finnigan
€ 20.00

"Do Penance or Perish" is a history of four of Ireland's Convent Magdalen Asylums, established in the mid-nineteenth century for the detention of prostitutes undergoing reform. The book contains case-histories of individual womean and insights into how the homes were run, discussing the far-reaching consequences of such a system, especially for the poor, and examines some of the misconceptions surrounding this discreditable episode in Irish women's history. Hardback, 256 pages.
