Seen Through an Artist's Eyes: Law and Violence In the Lives of Women

Yxta Maya Murray, Loyola Law School, Los Angeles, has published Art, Violence, and Women in CUNY Law Review's Footnote Forum, December 2014. Here is the 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.
