Arrested Justice: Black Women,
Violence, and America’s Prison Nation

New York University Press

Despite the fact that Black women in
marginalized communities are uniquely at risk of battering, rape,
sexual harassment, stalking, and incest, race and culture have never
been widely considered in the analysis of the causes and consequences
of gender violence. In her new book, University of Illinois professor
and director of the Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy
Beth Richie explores how the extent of violence in the lives of Black
women is minimalized--at best--and frequently ignored. Arrested
brings issues of sexuality, class, age, and
criminalization into focus alongside questions of public policy and
gender violence, resulting in a compelling critique, a passionate
reframing of stories, and a call to action for change.
