The organization was, in fact, closer to a prison or workhouse to which most women and girls were brought against their wills. A young woman could be locked up for years for an "offense" such as dancing in public or walking alone at night. Gallant seeks to mine the feelings of vulnerability and powerlessness as they relate to the present in the drive for social freedoms and equity.
