Description

"Fallen women" were sent to Magdalene homes to regain moral alignment. These women could have been prostitutes, mothers out of wedlock, or girls without support networks in life. In the painting, the women are sitting in the home, listening to a sermon. The name "Magdelene" comes from the biblical figure Mary Magdelene.
