A lecture by Alesha Durfee
In this talk, Prof. Durfee employs structural intersectionality to analyze legal interventions for domestic violence in the United States, including mandatory arrest laws and civil protection orders. In doing so, she centers women and girls of color who interact with the criminal and civil legal systems. Using data from the National Incident Based Reporting System, as well as new primary data on protection orders collected through a National Institute of Justice grant, she shows how mandatory arrest laws and civil protection orders often reproduce broader social inequalities even though they appear to be objective, neutral, and "victim friendly." She discusses the results of her research in the context of the increasing use of these systems to combat domestic violence in the United States.
