The Introduction provides an overview of the book’s arguments, methodology, and archive. During the 1970s, in prisons and in the “free world” outside their walls, radical women forged an organized resistance to the gendered and racialized violence of the U.S. carceral state. All Our Trials traces the making of this anticarceral feminism at the intersections of struggles for racial and economic justice, prisoners’ and psychiatric patients’ rights, and gender and sexual liberation. Drawing on extensive archival research and first-person narratives, the book explores the organizing, ideas, and influence of activists who placed criminalized and marginalized women at the center of their antiviolence mobilizations.
