9780030407116: Women Who Kill

"Stunning, revealing, provoking. . . . A powerful book, not only about women who murder, but also about how women have been perceived."—Vogue

"[Jones] is a sardonic, savagely witty storyteller."—Walter Clemons, Newsweek

"This provocative book . . . reminds us again that women are entitled to their rage." —Barbara Grizzuti Harrison, The New York Times Book Review

"A classic and superb piece of work that can change social attitudes." —Adrienne Rich

"An extraordinary feat . . . a groundbreaking book filled with originality on every page."—Susan Brownmiller

Ann Jones's classic book shows that female violence is nothing new and hardly rare, and the motivation behind it speaks volumes about the society in which it takes place.”—Patty Jenkins, director of Monster

This legendary bestseller exposes the truths and consequences of women on the edges of society—women driven to kill. From Lizzie Borden to Jean Harris to Aileen Wuornos, this riveting investigation will change the ways you think about crime and punishment. A new introduction by the author illuminates the conditions for women who kill—and are killed—now.

Author of Kabul in Winter: Life Without Peace in Afghanistan, Ann Jones is a journalist and activist for women's rights around the globe. She is currently working on a book about women, war, and photography.
