Elizabeth visited Newgate prison in 1812. She was horrified by the crowded and dirty prison conditions. The women did their own cooking and washing in the small cells in which they slept. She returned the following day with food and clothes for some of the prisoners. Fry was a major driving force behind new legislation to make the treatment of prisoners more humane.
