Sex Slaves Of the Catholic Church reveals that thousands of nuns were sexually abused for decades by priests around the world.
From 1994 until 2015 the Vatican was alerted by internal confidential reports about churchmen that regularly rape nuns in more than 23 countries. These reports have been hushed up and the rapists continue to harm freely. With the complicity of the ecclesiastical courts, their victims have been reduced to silence, sometimes pushed to abort, often excluded from their community.
For the first time the victim nuns, their superior mothers, priests and rapists break the silence to testify to these systemic sexual abuses.
French director Marie-Pierre Raimbault collaborated with investigative journalist Eric Quintin for more than three years, to obtain the firsthand accounts of nuns who claim they were used as “sex slaves” by Catholic priests.
Sex Slaves Of the Catholic Church premieres on SBS VICELAND on Friday 30 August at 9.20pm.
