From Myra Hindley to the mother of Baby P, society often seems both fascinated and horrified by the minds of women involved in the most serious crimes.
Push aside the media frenzy around this topic and hear the perspective of an inside expert. Dr Gwen Adshead is Consultant Psychotherapist at Broadmoor high security psychiatric hospital and works with people in violent and frightening states of mind. Dr Adshead comes to Free Thinking to confront some of the most uncomfortable implications of our attitudes to violent women.
This event will broadcast in Radio 3's Night Waves on Tuesday 27th October at 9.15pm.
