About this product
- DescriptionThe history of the execution of women in the United States has largely been igred and scholars have given scant attention to gender issues in capital punishment. This historical analysis examines the social, political and ecomic contexts in which the justice system has put women to death, revealing a pattern of patriarchal domination and female subordination. The author includes a discussion of condemned women granted executive clemency and judicial commutations, an inquiry into women falsely convicted in potentially capital cases and a profile of the current female death row population.
