Chapter three provides a detailed study of black and white clubwomen’s efforts to eliminate convict leasing. Central to the comparative analysis of the National Association of Colored Women and the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union is their divergent approaches to the rape of black women by prison guards. This chapter engages the complexities of reform and respectability in southern women’s organizational politics in the early twentieth century.
