Powerful Video Played during the M.U. Presentation to General Synod

June Butler, All Ireland President of Mothers’ Union, showed a video on gender justice and gender based violence which are of concern to everyone in the Church of Ireland. A member of CASC, she said domestic abuse was the most insidious crime in Ireland today. In Covid times the United Nations has termed it the ‘shadow pandemic’. Mothers’ Union was the largest women’s grass roots organisation in the Anglican Communion, she said, and in 2014 MU agreed to come together to highlight domestic abuse.
