Gangland has been dominated by men, but throughout history women have wielded subtle and not-so-subtle influence in the criminal underworld. Join The Mob Museum and Lissa Townsend Rodgers, author of the new book Shameless: Women of the Underworld, for a look into the lives of notable women who refused to sit on the sidelines of crime. Women such as Stephanie St. Clair, queen of Harlem’s numbers racket; Virginia Hill, Mob associate who sat at Bugsy Siegel’s side in Las Vegas; and Kathryn Kelly, the brains behind George “Machine Gun” Kelly’s outlaw endeavors.  

A book signing of Shameless, Women of the Underworld will follow the program.​
