The Limerick Lady Podcast

Jan 20, 2022

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
