Based upon her personal 50 year struggle as a Quaker feminist and prison abolitionist, Knopp calls for the reform of the oppressive forces and institutions of patriarchy and punishment. A social-change process is outlined and issues involving areas of conflict between the pursuit of safety and the pursuit of justice with nonoppressive remedies are considered. Finally the primary themes and components of a community-organizing model for reducing and controlling sexual violence is presented, including perpetrator prevention education, victim survivor prevention, and offender restoration.
