Crimes of Outrage: Sex, Violence, and Victorian Working Women

by

Crimes of Outrage: Sex, Violence, and Victorian Working Women Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This provocative study explores the subordination of Victorian working women in the home, neighborhood, and workplace. Drawing on courtroom proceedings, D'Cruze reveals that women's interest in speaking out against violent crimes often coincide with the court's agenda to discipline the unruly behavior of working men. However, while women used local courts of vindicate their reputation before their neighbors, doing so often compromised their respectability in the eyes of the public.
