Hays Code ratified - March 31, 1930


It's the last day of women's history month, and it's our last special Sunday episode celebrating women's contributions to society.

You can find Nora's book, "Better Left Unsaid: Victorian Novels, Hays Code Films, and the Benefits of Censorship" here:<br><a href="https://www.sup.org/books/title/?id=22235">https://www.sup.org/books/title/?id=22235</a> .
