Voyage of the Courtesans

In 1789, more than 200 female thieves, prostitutes and con-artists rounded up from London's most prisons were shipped off to an Australian penal colony aboard a leaky vessel named the Lady Juliana. But once aboard, the women turned their banishment into opportunity, transforming their ship into a floating brothel on a journey that ended with the women as the founding mothers of Australia.
