Bad Bridget: Crime, Mayhem, and the Lives of Irish Emigrant Women

The Linen Hall 17 Donegall Square North, Belfast, United Kingdom

Ireland in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was not a good place to be a woman. Among the wave of emigrants from Ireland to North America were many, many young women who travelled on their own, hoping for a better life. Some lived lives of quiet industry and piety. Others quickly found themselves in trouble.
