Ep 26 Convicts and Cascades Pt 1: Australian History
We’re going to look at the female convicts who passed through the Cascades Female Factory, in Hobart, Tasmania, and reflect on the different experience the women convicts may have had, to those of the male convicts.
There are both harrowing and hilarious stories to be told about the institution and it’s inmates. So we’ll focus on the women in that institution in particular, as an example of experiences that might have been familiar to most convict women who were sent out to Australia.
Brilliant stories from Australia’s past!
