Islington History Society reviews Bad Girls

‘This history of Holloway Prison examines what sort of women prisoners were held there, what crimes they had committed, and how they were treated. Caitlin Davies argues that those who set up and run the justice system have historically been men – and men have always had a problem with deviant women …. A thoughtful and thought-provoking book’, Elizabeth Hawksley, Journal of the Islington Archaeology & History Society.
