- It reported, a harsh and physically demanding environment with a cold atmosphere and a rigid uncompromising work and prayer regime.
- Both verbal and psychological abuse was common.
- It was rare for a woman to have her head shaved as punishment but they had their hair cut back short in a bob.
More than 100 women were spoken to by the inquiry committee, more than half of whom are in nursing homes.
