Abstract

Recent scholarship on the twentieth-century feminist antiviolence movement has focused on white feminist activists who fought for increased criminal sanctions and prosecution of perpetrators as the solution to violence against women (see, for example, Rose Corrigan's Up against a Wall: Rape Reform and the Failure of Success [2013]). By contrast, Emily L. Thuma's All Our Trials is a much-needed history of anticarceral activism by radical women of color and antiracist white women, many of whom were lesbian-identified. These activists organized against interpersonal and institutional violence that interconnected in the lives of marginalized women in the United States.
