"Wretched" or Respectable: Judging Women in Late-Victorian London Courts Public

This research highlights the inequalities of courts in Late-Victorian London. Gender discrimination among women was discovered using newspaper reports. These reports displayed immediate social judgement of victims, offenders, and other parties completely irrelevant to the case at hand.Before being found guilty or not guilty, women were more commonly judged on their ability to properly fulfill their domestic roles and expectations.
