About the Author
Judith Levine is a longtime journalist and author of countless articles and commentaries in popular media-Village Voice, New York Times, Harper's, Boston Review, N+1, and others-as well as four books. Minors: The Perils of Protecting Children From Sex won the LA Times Book Award.

Erica Meiners is a professor of education and women's and gender studies at Northeastern Illinois University and the author of several books, most recently For the Children? Protecting Innocence in a Carceral State.
Reviews
"Levine and Meiners show how the contingent now called 'carceral' feminists (from the same root as incarcerate), spurred by rage and an eagerness for retribution--and by the exhilaration of 'at last we're getting the bastards'--has played a large role in expanding the prison industrial complex, along with that cruel sex offender registry, precisely at the time that other feminists and civil rights activists are trying to rein it in."
--Dr. Carol Tavris, Skeptic

"Pulls back the curtain on the history of the sex offender registry, its roots and its injustices, and how we can strive for a future with neither sexual harm nor state violence."
--Lyra Walsh Fuchs Dissent
