Caitlin Davies – Queens of the Underworld

9 December 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Popular culture is littered with famous criminal men – from Robin Hood to Ronnie Biggs they’ve become folk heroes. But what about all the criminal women?  Where are the highwaywomen, jewel thieves, bank robbers and gold smugglers? Did they never exist, or have they just been forgotten? The Queens of the Underworld broke down barriers in their pursuit of crime, whether wearing trousers, driving racing cars or running illegal empires. But crime has been seen as a male pursuit and so female criminals have been dismissed and their stories have been lost.

Come and hear Caitlin tell their stories.

Sadly, this event will now only be on Zoom, because of concerns about COVID-19. Those who registered for the in-person event will be sent the Zoom link.
