Femme Fatale, the Female Criminal highlights the way in which society has interpreted and contained the criminality of women. The pictorial content starkly contrasts the glamour of film noir seductresses and pulp fiction sirens with the reality of female criminals from Sydney's Long Bay Goal in the first half of the 20th century. Generously illustrated with over 60 full-colour and black and white images, this publication illustrates how dangerous women both entice and appall us.
