Abstract

What do "violence" and "peace" mean in the lives of women? The Supreme Court in 2000's U.S. v. Morrison didn't have a clue. Artist Wangechi Mutu does, though. In honor of the 20th anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act, Yxta Maya Murray offers the artist's studies of both of these conditions as an antidote to Morrison's etiolated vision.
