Legislation for the Prevention of Domestic Violence

Legislation for the Prevention of Domestic Violence

(p.89) Chapter 4 Legislation for the Prevention of Domestic Violence
Sisters in the Statehouse

Nadia E. Brown

Oxford University Press

Chapter 4 demonstrates how the approach of political intersectionality in domestic violence prevention legislation provides an important analytical tool for understanding how African American women representatives navigate traditional feminist policies. The chapter illustrates that Black women legislators in the Maryland state legislature mention domestic violence as a policy priority whereas White women and, overwhelmingly, White and Black male legislators do not. This chapter uses generational analysis to find a marked difference in how younger African American women vote on domestic violence legislation in comparison with their older counterparts.
