The Spinning House : How Cambridge University locked up women in its private prison Hardback

Hardback

Description

Cambridge University is renowned worldwide for its academic prowess, but below the surface lurks a murky past.

During the nineteenth century, the university became infamous for its dogged determination to cling to ancient laws allowing it to arrest and imprison unchaperoned women found walking the streets of Cambridge after dark. Mistakes were made. Violence and legal action followed until finally an Act of Parliament put an end to the university’s jurisdiction over the women of Cambridge.
