abstract

  • The article focuses on the social issues of gender and domestic violence involved in the criminal trial of singer Mae Talbot in the 1900s. A brief overview is presented of the trial of Talbot for the murder of her husband after he abused her. It is suggested that the trial focused more on social ideas about intimate partner violence in the early twentieth century than about social entertainment regarding a murder trial.
