Gendered Justice in the American West: Women Prisoners in Men's Penitentiaries - Paperback

2001, ISBN: 9780252022814

Hardcover, ID: 518510314

University of California Press, Berkeley and Los Angeles: 1993. Softcover. Very good condition. Susan Bordo is Singletary Chair in the Humanities and Professor of English and Women's Studies at the University of Kentucky. She is the author of The Male Body: A New Look at Men in Public and in Private (1999), and Twilight Zones: The Hidden Life of Cultural Images from Plato to O.J. (California, 1997). "Unbearable Weight is brilliant. From an immensely knowledgeable feminist perspective, in engaging, jargonless (!) prose, Bordo analyzes a whole range of issues connected to the bodyÑweight and weight loss, exercise, media images, movies, advertising, anorexia and bulimia, and much moreÑin a way that makes sense of our current social landscapeÑfinally! This is a great book for anyone who wonders why women's magazines are always describing delicious food as 'sinful' and why there is a cake called Death by Chocolate. Loved it!"ÑKatha Pollitt, Nation columnist and author of Subject to Debate: Sense and Dissents on Women, Politics, and Culture (2001) Includes an Index. ISBN: 0520088832., University of California Press, Berkeley and Los Angeles: 1993, Univ of Illinois Press, Urbana, Illinois, 1997. No Edition. Hardcover. New/New. Illustrator: Photographs. Even more than the well-known images of the lone gunfighter or the reckless cowboy, the penitentiary was an important symbol of violence in the American West, violence that intensified when compounded by the factors of race, class, and sex. In this pathbreaking study of women prisoners in men's penitentiaries from 1865 to 1915, Anne M. Butler shows that the women, already faced with distinct gender disadvantages within western society, were subjected to intense physical and mental violence while in prison. For women of color or of lower social class, she argues, the violence was even greater and more frequent. Butler's poignant cross-cultural account draws on prison records and the words of the women themselves. She explores how 19th-century criminologists constructed the "criminal women"; the elements, of age, race, class, and gender in women's court proceedings; the kinds of violence encountered by women inmates; their diet, illnesses, experiences with pregnancy and child-bearing; prison work systems for women; and women's own strategies for response. 262 pages including a selected bibliography and index. Bound in lavender cloth, with illustrations throughout. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. . Illustrator: Photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Category: History::American h; Law and Criminality::True Events.
