Brid Smith TD: A plea on International Women’s Day for Magdalene survivors

Forgive my breathlessness on this clip – I had been questioning issues related to Jobpath in the committee rooms – some way away from the Dáil chamber when my turn came to speak – so I ran because this is important. Yes we remember Enda Kenny’s words and tears about the Magdalene women. But actions speak louder than words, a point I wasn’t allowed put to Coveney. Seven women have died waiting for redress. Wouldn’t it be a great gesture if on International Womens’ Day the government GUARANTEED all resources needed to give these women redress – NOW?
