Women on Opposite Sides of the Law

Please join me and fellow author, Denise Testa, for our discussion of three women who stood on opposite sides of the law: Jessie Levy and Bess Robbins, who defended six members of the infamous John Dillinger gang in the early 1930s, and Sophie Lyons, who was one of the most notorious female criminals of the nineteenth century.

Using their own intriguing stories, we’ll explain the challenges these women faced and how they succeeded in places women weren’t normally welcome.
