Overview

"The insane asylum on Blackwell's Island is a human rat-trap. It is easy to get in, but once there it is impossible to get out." Twenty-three-year-old journalist Nellie Bly, describing New York City's most notorious mental institution, wrote those words in 1887 after getting herself committed to the asylum. After her release she wrote a shocking exposé called Ten Days in a Madhouse, launching her career as a world-famous investigative reporter and helping to improve conditions at mental institutions across the United States. Her story is just as remarkable today as it was shen she wrote it. Soon to be a major motion picture. Newly designed and typeset by Waking Lion Press.

I love reading historical stuff and this was really interesting. To see from her eyes what would have been something scary to go through is amazing.

Incredibly shocking to see how women were treated in the 1800s. We've come a long way, but still room for improvement. How scary how easily it was for a woman to get committed for insanity, then to endure such a hell hole.
