THE SUFFERING OF WOMEN WHO DIDN'T FIT: 'Madness' in Britain 1450-1950
Exposes the agonies of life for the 'second class' gender; from misdiagnosis to brutal oppression, seen as in league with the Devil or the volatile wretch. Touching no less than six centuries, it recalls how, for a woman, being labeled as mad was much less a risk, more her inevitable burden. 16 pages of photos.
