Summary "Women's Works, vol. 4 (1625-1650) opens with the verse of Anna Ley and Anne Southwell; turns to the deposition of Mabel Swinnerton (in a child molestation complaint against Dr. John Lamb), and the testimony of the Tuchet women (against the earl of Castlehaven). These are followed by the poetry of Martha Moulsworth, "Diana" Primrose, and Sibilla Dover; the cultural discourse of Lucy Hay (both political and erotic); the Civil War letters of Henriette Marie; the Women's Peace March of August 1643; and much more. Volume 4 closes with the December 1650 hanging of Anne Green for the crime of having had a miscarriage - and her real-life resurrection moments before her body was to be dissected in an anatomy theater at Oxford University." -- Publisher's description
