Summary
"Modern women on trial looks at the highly publicised, sensational trials of several young female protagonists in the period 1918-24. These cases, all presented by the press as morality tales involving drugs, murder, adultery, miscegenation and sexual perversion, are used as a prism through which to identify concerns about modern feminity."--
