This is a course designed to be taken by people who are incarcerated, though it can be adapted for formerly incarcerated people and other students who are not in prison. The goal of this course is to provide an understanding of how we can work to end sexual violence through the abolition of the prison industrial complex. Drawing upon work from abolitionist organizers and academics, this course goes through an introduction to feminism and abolition, how the prison industrial complex perpetrates sexual violence, carceral vs. anti-carceral responses to sexual violence, and reimagining our prevention and response tactics to harm.

This thesis is restricted to the Claremont Colleges current faculty, students, and staff.
