    There is a lot of information in the presentation. However, it, too, could have used more graphics or photographs to emphasize your arguments. The data is arresting, but I am curious: Why abolish the death penalty only for women?

    I really liked your comments on how the crimes that send women to death row are very much breaking ‘gendered’ expectations. Reminds me a lot of our discussion of good/bad mothers in Breaking Women, especially in how racialized this constructs are. However, I would also agree that the death penalty should be abolished for all, rather than just women.

    I had no idea about most of these statistics and histories behind the death penalty for women. As Sam said above, I would agree that we should abolish the death penalty altogether.
