The Feminist and the Sex Offender
This product is currently sold out.
A powerful case for freedom and transformation, for accountability and repair.
With analytical clarity and narrative force, The Feminist and the Sex Offender contends with two problems that, despite their inextricable linkages, are typically siloed in the era of #MeToo and mass incarceration: sexual and gender violence, on the one hand, and the state's unjust, ineffective, and soul-destroying response to it.
Levine and Meiners ask if it's possible to confront the culture of abuse, to hold harm-doers accountable, without recourse to a criminal justice system that redoubles injuries, fails survivors, and retrenches the conditions that made such abuse possible. Drawing on personal experience, reportage, and history, Feminist Justice develops an intersectional feminist approach to ending sexual violence.
It maps with considerable detail the unjust sex offender regime while highlighting the alternatives we urgently need.
