Caitear súil sa chlár seo ar striapachas sa fichiú aois déag go dtí an lá atá inniu ann in Éirinn, ar an tslí a chaití le mná scaoilte nuair a chuirtí in áiteanna iad mar na ‘Magdalene Laundries’ len iad a athshlánú.

Caitear súil ar conas mar atá athrú tagtha ar chúrsaí gnéis agus striapachais sa ré nua seo na teicneolaíochta, ar an idirlíon agus sna meáin.
The third in a three-part series on the history of prostitution in Ireland, written and directed by BAFTA-nominee Virginia Gilbert, featuring contributions from Senator David Norris, TD Liz MacManus, Ivana Baciik, Mary Kenny and Dr. Derek Freedman as well as contributions from women currently working in prostitution. Also featuring performances from Gerard McSorley, Declan Conlan and Fiona O'Shaughnessy. Episode 3 - 'The Pleasure Chest' charts the twentieth century through to the present day, beginning with the closure of Dublin's red-light district of Monto, changing sexual attitudes throughout the latter half of the twentieth century and current debates on the sex industry.
