Magdalenes of Ireland

The "Magdalene Laundries" were intended to be homes for troubled girls, but ended up as dumping grounds for unwed mothers, orphans, the mentally disabled, the homeless and the unwanted. More than 11,000 women passed through ten Magdalene institutions between 1922 and 1996. NOTE: Magdalene Societies in the United States operated asylums across the country in the 19th Century, patterned on the Irish model.
