After Decades of Silence,
The 1930's Female Public Enemies Speak Out

They flouted both moral and financial convention

The female companions of the bank robbing fugitives of the Great Depression - Their history, buried under decades of stereotype and parody, is revealed for the first time. With the assistance of eyewitnesses and descendants, court and prison records, their legacy is examined. During the height of the Depression, their behavior challenged FBI agents, Federal courts, Federal Bureau of Prison policy and parole boards, who put them under pressure to betray their men.

As part of Women's History Month, author Ellen Poulsen will be presenting "The American Gunmoll: From Bonnie Parker to Virginia Hill," a slide show/lecture, at The Mob Museum: The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, Las Vegas, on Saturday, March 22, 2014, 1-2 p.m.. The presentation will conclude with Q&A and informal discussions afterward.

This weekend presentation will begin the day before, on Friday, March 21, 2014, 1-5 p.m., in the Museum Gift Shop, where Ellen will be signing copies of her books, "Don't Call Us Molls: Women of the John Dillinger Gang," and "The Case Against Lucky Luciano: New York's Most Sensational Vice Trial."
