Camden New Journal Reviews Bad Girls

‘Bad Girls offers many great tales of those who called the now-closed Holloway prison their home…and Caitlin Davies delves into every conceivable story.For those living in the shadow of Islington’s Holloway prison the imagination has run wild for years, concocting images of terrible conditions. Caitlin offers a comprehensive and much-needed answer. The study of Britain’s first female-only prison offers a sympathetic view of the thousands of prisoners and their guards who have spent time within the hulking fortress. Through well-researched accounts of the lives of notable and notorious prisoners, Caitlin asks us to question the role of prisons in society itself….Her compassion for the inmates has produced a must read.’ Emily Finch, Camden New Journal
