SUMMARY

Jennifer Jones's intriguing book explores the legal, cultural, and dramatic representations of six accused murderesses to look at how English-speaking society responded to controlled anxiety over female transgressions. The woman who kills, in particular, the woman who kills a member of her own family has not only broken the law, she has also violated gender expectations Jones argues that dramatic representations of criminal women, especially women who kill, proliferate during times of heightened feminist activity and that theartical narratives, as evidenced in plays, television, and films, serve to contain women and deflect attention away from issues of women's systematic repression." Medea's Daughters focuses on six women (Lizzie Borden, Susan Smith, and Louise Wood-ward best known), whose murder trials caught the attention of their respective cultures. This broad specturm allows an examination of how women's legal status has evolved over five centuries.JENNIFER JONES is the author of 'MEDEA S DAUGHTERS: FORMING AND PERFORMING THE WOMAN WHO KIL', published 2003 under ISBN 9780814209363 and ISBN 081420936X.
