Genome: [r4 Bd=19931112]

Six telling trials from the last century.

Nicholas Stewart, QC, focuses on the controversial trial of two campaigners opposed to draconian laws introduced in the 1860s to control VD and prostitution. The Contagious Diseases Acts effectively allowed the authorities to subject women they considered to be prostitutes to a medical examination. Opponents saw them as an outrageous attack on civil liberties.
