Emily Thuma highlighted the feminist mobilizations of 1970s grassroots groups, Brooklyn’s Women Free Women in Prison and Seattle’s Through the Looking Glass, both of which focused on violence against women as a primary political issue. Her research analyzes these collectives' strategies and media production which articulated a definitive stance against prisons, citing institutionalized sexual, homophobic, and psychiatric violence against incarcerated women.
