As a genre within autobiography, the convict narrative has implicitly been gendered male. Although no female convict narratives were published, some survive within the colonial archive. This chapter considers a story of convict life, told in the Launceston Female Factory, and surviving today because it became evidence gathered by an enquiry into female convict prison discipline in Van Diemen’s Land (1841-43).
