About the Author

Sarah Haley is assistant professor of gender studies and African American studies at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Reviews

Haley offers an important analysis of a particular group of women: prisoners in Georgia from 1868 to the early 20th century. Astutely mining archival records, the author offers no soft edge to chronicle the 'unrepresentable' violence against incarcerate women, especially those of color. Highly recommended.--Choice


Explores the fate of black women convicted in the southern United States and Georgia in particular. . . . Reconstructs the course of dozens of women.--Champ Penal


Contributes immensely to US southern, economic, gender, and political history.--Southern Spaces
