The Final Report of the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes, which runs to 2,865 pages, was published on January 12, 2021. Initial reactions to the executive summary of the report were almost universally critical. In the months since survivors, activists, politicians and the public have grappled with the research, methodologies, analyses, and language of the Report. This panel, composed of members of the WHAI, all professional historians, and all with expertise in gender history research, will discuss their reactions to the report.
