Details

Lucy Williams begins her survey of criminal offences committed by Victorian women with a chapter describing the punishments a woman could expect – imprisonment, transportation to remote colonies, or death. Williams goes on to describe crimes ranging from pick-pocketing and street-walking to murder, telling the colourful stories of cases both famous and obscure and setting them against the harsh realities of 19th-century women’s lives.
