Description

Tells the history of how, over a span of two decades, the Kansas detained over 5,000 women for no other crime than having a venereal disease. Nicole Perry offers a timely critique of a failed public health policy that was based on perceptions of gender, race, class, and respectability rather than a reasoned response to the social problem at hand.
