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 Justice 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.
