Book by Law Victoria

Críticas:

"In "Resistance Behind Bars", Law uses comprehensive legal and social analysis, as well as the voices of incarcerated women themselves, to lay bare the racism and sexism that characterize the criminal justice system in general and women's incarceration specifically." --"Bitch" magazine

"In "Resistance Behind Bars," Law uses comprehensive legal and social analysis, as well as the voices of incarcerated women themselves, to lay bare the racism and sexism that characterize the criminal justice system in general and women's incarceration specifically." "Bitch" magazine"

""Resistance Behind Bars" refuses to let women prisoners remain unseen and unheard. Instead, it encourages us to think deeply and critically about our own responsibility to redesign a social landscape on which coercion and confinement . . . will eventually fade away." "Affilia: Journal of Women and Social Work""

"Law s accounts of women prisoners taking action are so inspirational that you will never be the same after reading them." "Earth First Newswire""

"In Resistance Behind Bars, Law uses comprehensive legal and social analysis, as well as the voices of incarcerated women themselves, to lay bare the racism and sexism that characterize the criminal justice system in general and women's incarceration specifically." --Bitch magazine

"By raising up their voices and stories, and by honoring their struggles, this book makes an important contribution to the growing movement to end prisons as we know them." --Michelle Alexander, civil rights lawyer and advocate

"Resistance Behind Bars refuses to let women prisoners remain unseen and unheard. Instead, it encourages us to think deeply and critically about our own responsibility to redesign a social landscape on which coercion and confinement . . . will eventually fade away." --Affilia: Journal of Women and Social Work

"Victoria Law's body of work supports this sense that mothers in prison are not merely victims of an unjust, greedy prison system that violates their human rights, but are also organizers, activists, and artists using mothering as an energy that transforms their lives and their conditions." --make/shift magazine

"Too often we hear accounts of the atrocities that take place behind prison walls without also hearing about the acts of resistance that inevitably accompany them. Victoria Law's important book illuminates these under reported stories of individual and collective organizing by women in prison and encourages all of us to work in solidarity across prison walls to create a world that no longer includes the prison industrial complex." --Angela Y. Davis, author, Abolition Democracy

"Repression tries not only to crush but to quiet. But as Vikki Law shows in this multifaceted book, all that is unseen is not absent. Guided by years of anti-prison organizing and a palpable feminist practice, Law documents the many ways women challenge the twin forces of prison and patriarchy, each trying to render women invisible. In the face of attempts at erasure, women prisoners resist to survive and survive to resist. We would do well to pay attention." --Dan Berger, author, Outlaws of America: The Weather Underground and the Politics of Solidarity
