Rising from Rape: A Memoir of Survival and Justice
Judith A. Yates

Drawing on media reports, interviews and court records, this book recounts the stories of women bank robbers in the United States, from the time of the Revolutionary War to the present. Ranging from sensational to poignant to comical, the heists of frontier outlaws, gun molls, insurrectionists, housewives, grandmas and young mothers “literally robbing for Pampers” are narrated as part of the social history of women in America.
