Summary
The debate about women and torture has, until recently, focused on women as victims of violence. But when photographs were released from the Abu Ghraib prisoner-abuse scandal, one featured a woman holding a prisoner by a dog leash. Overnight, she became a symbol of women's capacity to inflict pain and suffering--and soon, many in America were questioning why the infliction of violence has always been seen as inherently male. This collection deals specifically with this issue. In her foreword, Barbara Ehrenreich wonders why she once assumed women possessed an innate aversion to violence. Her essay serves as a launching point for the rest of the contributors, which include academics, journalists, and activists, each grappling with women's involvement in torture and the abuse of power. Thes essays challenge and examine the expectations placed on women while attempting to understand female perpetrators of abuse and torture in a broader context.--From publisher description
