Description


In this expansive companion to Abolition Feminisms Vol. I, contributors confront multiple paradigms of punitivity--the foundational logics of family, borders, heterosexuality, colonial violence, and more--to disengage us from root systems of carcerality.

The book transcends various modes and forms: through grassroots praxis, critical research, storytelling, diagrams, poetry, and visual art, these pieces build on the legacies of feminist thinkers who formulated abolitionist critiques of policing, surveillance, and control. The resulting framework provides readers with the resources to cultivate and inhabit a post-carceral world of radical freedom and possibility.

She has been an advocate within the feminist anti-violence movement for over 25 years, including co-founding Survived & Punished, a national abolitionist organization that advocates for the decriminalization of survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Jakeya Caruthers is Assistant Professor of English & Africana Studies at Drexel University. Her research attends to black political aesthetics within 20th and 21st century cultural production as well as race, gender, sexuality, and state discipline.

She is also collaborating on a digital archive of feminist decriminalization campaigns waged over the last 50 years.
