A History of Rebels and RenegadesAudiobook on MP3 CD - 2018
The women imprisoned in Holloway have come from all corners of the UK - whether a patriot from Scotland, or a spy from the Isle of Wight - and from all walks of life - socialites and prostitutes, refugees and freedom fighters. They were imprisoned for treason and murder, for begging, performing abortions and stealing clothing coupons, for masquerading as men, running brothels and attempting suicide. In Bad Girls, Caitlin Davies tells their stories and shows how women have been treated in our justice system over more than a century, what crimes - real or imagined - they committed, who found them guilty and why. It is a story of victimisation and resistance; of oppression and bravery.
