The editors and contributors to Color of Violence ask: What would it take to end violence against women of color? Presenting the fierce and vital writing of organizers, lawyers, scholars, poets, and policy makers, Color of Violence radically repositions the antiviolence movement by putting women of color at its center. The contributors shift the focus from domestic violence and sexual assault and map innovative strategies of movement building and resistance used by women of color around the world. The volume's thirty pieces—which include poems, short essays, position papers, letters, and personal reflections—cover violence against women of color in its myriad forms, manifestations, and settings, while identifying the links between gender, militarism, reproductive and economic violence, prisons and policing, colonialism, and war. At a time of heightened state surveillance and repression of people of color, Color of Violence is an essential intervention. Contributors.

Challenges the notions that violence against women is synonymous with domestic violence and that violence affects all women equally Structural Violence seeks to redraw the conventional map of violence against women. In order to understand violence as a fundamentally heterogeneous phenomenon, it is essential to go beyond interpersonal partner violence and analyze the workings of institutional and structural violence. Self-help books, some shelters, the courts, federal and state legislation, empirical studies, therapeutic models, and even some mainstream feminist polemics presume that all women face the same kind of violence. This assumption masks violence that does not conform to the imagined norm, such as violence against women who are sex workers, lesbians, homeless, and/or undocumented. Joshua M. Prices exploration of these issues is based on several years of research involving participant-observation in domestic violence courts and extensive interviews with activists, advocates, incarcerated women, and women who have faced various forms of violence. Both conceptually and methodologically, the book challenges narrow notions of violence against women and demonstrates implications for judicial intervention and other forms of public involvement.

"A meaningful documentation of the ways in which structural and cultural conditions in current immigration and violence against women laws in the United States reinforce the hierarchies and intersections of race, class, and heterosexuality that impact on the lives of battered Latina immigrants."---Natalie J. Sokoloff, author of Domestic Violence at the Margins: Readings in Race, Class, Gender, and Culture "With great sensitivity to the plight of Latina immigrants who face partner abuse, Villalon has produced a beautifully crafted and finely grained ethnography. The book makes a major contribution to the analysis of violence against women, immigration and citizenship. It is a must read for anyone interested in understanding the complexities involved in those issues."---Mounira M. Charrad, author of States and Women's Rights: The Making of Postcolonial Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco "Many of us have been waiting for this book for a long time. It does not disappoint. By creating a dialogue between domestic violence research and immigration studies, Villalon puts into sharp relief the experiences of women rendered invisible in both research traditions. By locating the experiences of immigrant women and their advocates within a rich ethnographic study of state policies and organizational practices, Villalon paints a complex picture of the contradictions that contribute to the reproduction of inequality. This is activist scholarship at its best."---Nancy A. Naples, author of Grassroots Warriors: Activist Mothering, Community Work and the War against Poverty. Caught between violent partners and the bureaucratic complications of the U.S. immigration system, many immigrant women are particularly vulnerable to abuse. For two years, Roberta Villaon volunteered at a nonprofit group that offered free legal services to underprivileged immigrants who had been victims of initmate partner violence. Her innovative study of Latina survivors of domestic abuse explores the intersection of immigration, citizenship, and violence, and shows how inequality is perpetuated even through domestic violence-based immigration laws and the well-intentioned delivery of vital services. Villalon proposes an active advocacy agenda and suggests possible policy changes, revealing the complexities of the lives of battered Latina immigrants.

Displaced Memories analyzes the representation of traumatic memories--political imprisonment, torture, survival, and exile--in the literary works of Alicia Kozameh, Alicia Partnoy, and Nora Strejilevich, survivors of Argentina's "Dirty War" (1976-1983). Beginning with an examination of the history of Argentina's last dictatorship, the conditions that led the authors to exile, and the contexts in which the texts were published, Portela provides the theoretical tools for the understanding of narratives of trauma and displacement caused by political violence. The author proposes a theory that critiques post-structuralist paradigms of trauma, which present trauma as an unclaimed experience impossible to apprehend, as she argues for an analysis of the symbolic uses of language, presenting trauma as a claimed experience that can be brought into representation and therefore create the conditions of possibility for working through.
