LKLadyPod #38 “244 Women Since 1996”

Ann Blake and Emma Langford host the Limerick Lady Podcast, sponsored by Ormston House

Ann and Emma record together, in person, for the first time since March of 2020. This month’s episode is a reflection on gender-based violence, men’s violence, and violence against women.
According to Women’s Aid, 244 women have died violently in Ireland since 1996.
Of resolved cases, 87% were perpetrated by a man.
13% of perpetrators were strangers.
We dedicate this episode to the memories of all these women.
You can report flashing and assault under section 45 of the sexual offences act
