About this talk

Stories of organised crime, gender and power in Europe shines a light on the 'discarded footnotes' of organised crime, in other words, the women. A creative graphic narrative that tells the stories of five young women involved in different forms of criminal organisations and activities in Europe thanks to the original research of Felia Allum and the unique drawings of Anna Mitchell. This book not only raises vital questions about the importance of gender when analysing organised crime but also gives a voice to these women to show that they are not purely victims but also have their own agency. It questions the dominant lens so far used to investigate, collect, prosecute and analyse organised crime that focuses solely on the men. It is time for things to change.
