Please come to my online presentation on the murder of Mary Ashford in 1817 on 9 March 2021 at 7pm. I will be exploring the rape culture of the 18th and early 19th centuries through the notorious case of Mary Ashford whose death in Erdington, near Birmingham became a cause célèbre.
Local gentlemen were so outraged that the man accused of her rape and murder was acquitted that they funded a second trial. So why did they also blame Mary for her own death? 200 years on, has anything really changed for women in the #metoo era?
Who: Naomi Clifford
When: Tuesday 9 March 2021, 7pm
A Friends of Carnegie Library event.
