Don't Call Us Molls
By

Rating
Buried under decades of stereotype and parody, the true history of the female companions of the Great Depression's bank-robbing gang is uncovered. "Don't Call Us Molls" carefully examines the legacy of the Dillinger women using eyewitness and descendants' accounts as well as courtroom and prison records. This book explores the collective experience of these fugitives and offers a thoughtful, well-informed commentary on past attitudes toward the marginalized women of the day - the lawbreakers, the informers, and a lone female sheriff. FBI memos, court transcripts, and never-before-published photos reveal the events experienced by women under siege, resurrecting historical figures and their private behavior. This history lays bare the personal lives of the wives and girlfriends of the public enemies of the 1930s and examines how their conflicting loyalties were challenged and exploited by unrelenting pressure of the US government to betray their men.

Reviews

"The extraordinary accomplishment of Don't Call Us Molls is Poulsen's revealing, for the first time, the hidden lives of the women who loved these nefarious outlaws. It is an untold story of desperate romance, astonishing escapes, unspeakable brutality, covert abortions and intra-gang rivalries for the affection of men, both in and out of prison."
