Description

The criminalization of violence against women over the past forty years represents both social movement success and the paradoxical alignment of feminism with increasingly punitive carceral policies. While critics of what is now known as carceral feminism locate the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) of 1994 and its attachment to the Crime Bill as the watershed moment in the collaborative relationship between mainstream feminism and the carceral state, this research turns to the formative years of the “battered women’s movement” to gain insight into how and why early feminists turned so definitively to criminalization as a response to domestic violence.
