Symposium 2012


Overpoliced and Underprotected: Women, Race, and Criminalization

Recently, mass incarceration has been theorized as a system of racialized social control. This frame, however, often relies on long-standing gender reductionism that posits the primary subject of punishment and criminalization as male. At the same time, the unprecedented growth of female incarceration has spawned a host of gender-sensitive interventions, yet the discourses that are gender-sensitive often marginalize if not entirely erase the distinctive racial dimensions of the punitive turn in public policy. This Symposium will interrogate how criminalization is mediated through various intersections of race, gender and class and will shed light on the dimensions of racialized criminalization that are gendered differently.

We gotta make a change…
It’s time for us as a people to start makin’ some changes.
Let’s change the way we eat, let’s change the way we live
and let’s change the way we treat each other.
You see the old way wasn’t working so it’s on us to do
what we gotta do, to survive

California to Release Thousands of Female Prisoners

Prison officials in California are preparing to release thousands of female inmates who have children to finish their sentences from home. The state faces a court-imposed order to make room in its overcrowded prison system. The release would apply to mothers convicted of nonviolent, non-sexual crimes with two or less years left on their sentence. Officials say the decision would apply to more than 4,000 of the 9,500 female inmates behind bars

On the 9th of August 1956, 20,000 South African women of all races  marched on the Union Buildings in Pretoria to oppose the Urban Areas  Act, commonly known as the Pass Laws  legislation that required  “non-whites” to carry a document known as the Dom Pas which would allow  them to move around, or live in “White South Africa”. The day is now  commemorated as Women’s Day.
