Explore the status of married women in Victorian England. They had no rights to property, earnings, children or even their own bodies - all belonged to the husband, to use as he pleased.

Their rebellion struck at the heart of the establishment and resulted in a British Prime Minister being taken to court and the heir to the throne taking the witness stand in two of the most scandalous court cases of the 19th century.
