Beyond Brutal Passions

Prostitution in Early Nineteenth-Century Montreal

Auteur/ Illustrateur / Sous la direction de : Mary Anne Poutanen

During a time of significant demographic, geographic, and social transition, many women in early nineteenth-century Montreal turned to prostitution and brothel-keeping to feed, clothe, protect, and house themselves and their families. Beyond Brutal Passions is a close study of the women who were accused of marketing sex, their economic and social susceptibilities, and the strategies they employed to resist authority and assert their own agency.
