International Women’s Day: A Time to Recognise and Celebrate Irish Survivors of Institutional Care

IWSSN would like to wish our own clients and women across the world, Happy International Women’s Day.

We are proud  to be an organisations that has campaigned for justice and equality for Survivors of Irish institutional care, including those who were incarcerated in Magdalene laundries. We are also incredibly proud of Irish survivors of institutional care who’ve brought down every barrier they’ve been confronted with in their lives, who have fought to secure justice and have moved on their lives.

Irish Survivors are called ‘survivors’ for a reason. After all, whilst these individuals may have been victims of neglect, abuse and assault, they survived it, and deserve to be recognised for their resilience rather than what happened to them.
