9780044409571: No Angels: Women who commit violence

An exploration of high-profile women, contemporary and historical, real and fictional, who commit violence against men, this book was originally inspired by the Bobbitt case and reactions to it. In essays on Lindy Chamberlain (the "dingo baby" case), Myra Hindley, Winnie Mandela, Lorena Bobbitt, Rosemary West, Ruth Ellis and "the Brookside Two", among others, the contributors tease out the blurred boundaries between myth and reality which always surround violent women and attempt to demolish the old either/or explanations of powerless victim or evil demon.
