Bad girls do the best sheets; Exhibition: Enslaved In A Magdalene Laundry, Adelaide - 5th September - 3rd October 2014

These drawings were made
by Rachael Romero, who, as a fourteen-year-old runaway, was locked in a Good Shepherd Convent

 Here girls were forced to work in prison conditions without pay.
Authorities failed to regulate or inspect the dangerous working conditions in these industrial laundries where young women suffered forced labor under the rule of silence, physical and emotional abuse that left a legacy for survivors to overcome


¨ Perhaps we cannot prevent this world from being a world in which children are tortured. But we can reduce the number of tortured children. And if you don’t help us, who else in the world can help us do this?
CAMUS, (1948); reported in Resistance, Rebellion and Death (translation by Justin O'Brien, 1961), p. 73
Do not wait for the Last Judgment. It takes place every day.   --Camus  ¨
