Forced Marriage

Forced Marriage – Sameem Ali was forced to marry a man she hardly knew at the age of 13, but eventually escaped her abusive family. She is now an author, a local government councillor and campaigns for better education about the problem of forced marriage. Here she tells her story and makes it clear: “Forced marriage is not part of my culture”.

The Magdalenes

The Magdalenes – Imagine if you were abducted and held prisoner against your will: if your possessions were taken, your hair was cut; you were forced to wear a uniform and answer to a new name. For women like Gabrielle O’Gorman who were sent to the Magdalene Institutions in Ireland, this was a reality. Gabrielle tells her story, and revisits the now-derelict Institution she was sent to as a teenager.

This film, made by Nick Carew, was funded by the University of Kent, and completed with the help of the Women’s Studies Centre at University College Dublin who led an Irish Research Council project on the Magdalene Institutions.
