For the Children?

Erica R. Meiners

University of Minnesota Press

The sixth chapter challenges the state’s response to sexual violence against children (and women) and argues that critiquing the popular construction of the sex offender and the growth of associated registries and notification laws must be a focal point of work for not only anti-prison scholars and activists but those invested in ending sexual violence.
