“With a solid theoretical framework that includes such noted feminist
scholars as Luce Irigaray, Carolyn Heilbrun, Carol Gilligan, and Ann
Jones, Graham-Bertolini provides a thoroughly researched study. She
argues successfully that the emerging genre of female vigilantism is part of
a wider political movement that provides evidence of a growing conviction
that oppression of women must be stopped. Vigilante literature works collectively
to demonstrate that laws, as they currently exist, are inadequate
in providing equity for women.”
