Harlots, Hussies, and Poor Unfortunate Women
- Crime, Transportation, and the Servitude of Female Convicts, 1718-1783
- By: Edith M. Ziegler
- Narrated by: Sally Martin
- Length: 8 hrs and 7 mins
Great Britain's forced transportation of convicts to colonial Australia is well known. Less widely known is Britain's earlier program of sending convicts - including women - to North America. Many of these women were assigned as servants in Maryland. Contemporary readers and scholars will be fascinated by Ziegler's explanation of how gender-influenced punishments were meted out to women and often ensnared them in Britain's system of convict labor.
What if criminal justice was unchanged since then?
