About this item

Baker cites the paucity of comprehensive studies on the historical contexts of systemic oppression in female capital justice, with the history of executions largely “unknown, ignored, and discounted”. He aims to bring voice to this forgotten population victimized by the interlocking systems of race, gender, and class oppression in American capital justice. Nine chapters are divided into three parts: theoretical and empirical frameworks; historical context; wrongful convictions, judicial commutations, executive clemency and women on death row today. Chapters are: theoretical frameworks; empirical frameworks; the first historical trend, 1630s-1750s; the second historical trend, 1760s-1890s; the third historical trend, 1900s-2010s; wrongful convictions in potentially capital cases; judicial reversals of capital convictions; executive clemency of condemned women; the female death row population.
