The Toronto Star reviews Bad Girls

The Toronto Star, Canada’s largest online news site, has chosen Bad Girls as one of five new books that ‘upend traditional views about women’.

‘The bad girls of the title are women who were jailed for drunkenness, prostitution, being suffragettes, murder, theft, performing abortions – indeed the full monty of activities that society frowns on…This is a deeply researched social history of the prison and the women confined in it.’
