Description

From 1848 to 1854 the Ross Female Factory processed hundreds of women transported to Van Diemen’s Land, providing “a complete institution for the exploitation of female convicts in the service of the great houses of the Midlands.”
But, as the Female Convicts Research Group (Tasmania) remind us in this compelling book, many convict women who passed through the Ross Female Factory also found ways to challenge the convict system, to make their mark.
