A reformer's wife ought to be an heroine: my new article on the radical women of 1817

My new article is out in the next issue of History journal: 'A reformer's wife ought to be an heroine: Gender, Family and English Radicals Imprisoned under the Suspension of Habeas Corpus Act of 1817'.

It's about the correspondence between state prisoners arrested for high treason under the suspension of habeas corpus act of 1817 and their wives back home, trying to sustain the radical movement in their absence.

The letters are in the HO 42 series at the National Archives.
