Making sense of the world, one story at a time. Host Malika Bilal and journalists from Al Jazeera's international bureaus share their take on the news every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Ireland's Mother and Baby Home scandal destroyed families, cost up to 6,000 babies' lives, and emotionally scarred an estimated 30,000 women — and it's just one part of a system of institutional abuse. Al Jazeera documented how this network of abuse is a window into the church-sanctioned violence against women in Ireland, and the government’s alleged attempts to sweep it all under the rug.
