    Black women in marginalized communities are uniquely at risk of battering, rape, sexual harassment, stalking and incest Through the compelling stories of Black women who have been most affected by racism, persistent poverty, class inequality, limited access to support resources or institutions, Beth E Richie shows that the threat of violence to Black women has never beenBlack women in marginalized communities are uniquely at risk of battering, rape, sexual harassment, stalking and incest Through the compelling stories of Black women who have been most affected by racism, persistent poverty, class inequality, limited access to support resources or institutions, Beth E Richie shows that the threat of violence to Black women has never been serious, demonstrating how conservative legal, social, political and economic policies have impacted activism in the U.S based movement to end violence against women Richie argues that Black women face particular peril because of the ways that race and culture have not figured centrally enough in the analysis of the causes and consequences of gender violence As a result, the extent of physical, sexual and other forms of violence in the lives of Black women, the various forms it takes, and the contexts within which it occurs are minimized at best and frequently ignored Arrested Justice brings issues of sexuality, class, age, and criminalization into focus right alongside of questions of public policy and gender violence, resulting in a compelling critique, a passionate re framing of stories, and a call to action for change.

    1. This book was a great follow up after reading The New Jim Crow, since Michelle Alexander provides a broader historical view of how the current prison industrial complex came to be Dr Richie delves into the reasons and motives behind why the criminal justice system and social services are clearly not set up for Black women, but can also serve to further cause violence and criminalization I could draw significant parallels between the Southern Strategy described in the New Jim Crow and the efforts [...]

    2. Richie s proposed framework for looking at violence against black women in context with household, community, and state aspects and all part of the rise of the prison nation is an important tool for feminists working on violence issues Richie combines statistics and academic analysis with lots of real life examples of black women who experienced different kinds of violence and fell through the cracks of both the justice system and the largely white feminist movement against violence against wome [...]

    3. I d love to know how Beth Richie researched and wrote however many drafts of this book without succumbing to the urge to bury her head under a pillow never come out The examples she gives of interpersonal and institutional violence against Black women are painful, hopefully spurring readers to connect the dots and not view them as separate incidents that are not part of a larger whole as well as to action.

    7. Richie puts forth a compelling argument for how a black feminist violence matrix can portray violence perpetuated by the state as an additional intersectional layer that is largely ignored by within this Prison nation Can be used to understand situations beyond those of black women of domestic violence occurring in a community fearful of ICE, for example Incredibly poignant and hard hitting.

    8. Wow Beth E Richie really hit the nail on the head with this book The analysis and inclusion of race, class, gender and the neoliberal, capitalist system that we exist in and how it relates to Black women with that is spot on There were so many points were I was nodding my head vigorously in agreement with the analysis is too many to count There are so many great facts and analyses in this book that it could be required analysis for things beyond what s covered here, the analysis can be applied t [...]

    9. Richie s work is just excellent and thoughtful scholarly exploration of the impact mass incarceration, violence, gender, and race in the lives of Black women Richie offers some of the best explications of violence data and Black feminist theory that I have read I highly recommend this book not only for scholars but also for teaching undergraduates It is solid and very readable.

    10. I read this book as part of a book award committee I serve on for a local women s organization While the issues Richie examines in her book are right in line with the organization s mission it was a dry and tedious read that would not appeal to a broad audience.
