All Our Trials: Prisons, Policing, and the Feminist Fight to End Violence

UCI Law, Law Library, California Room
401 E. Peltason Drive, Suite 1000, Irvine, CA 92697-8000

During the 1970s, grassroots women activists in and outside of prison forged a radical politics against gender violence and incarceration. All Our Trials explores the work of these activists who placed criminalized women, and the multiple violences they confronted, at the heart of their organizing. Drawing on extensive archival research, Emily Thuma traces the making of this anticarceral feminism at the intersections of movements for racial and economic justice, prisoners’ and psychiatric patients’ rights, and gender and sexual liberation. In the process, she illuminates a crucial chapter in a struggle that continues in today's movements against mass incarceration and for transformative justice.

Emily Thuma is an assistant professor in the Division of Politics, Philosophy, and Public Affairs at the University of Washington, Tacoma.
