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

Urbana, Illinois: Univ Of Illinois Press. New in New dust jacket. 1997. Hardcover. 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. ., Univ Of Illinois Press, 1997
