ALVES, Dina. Prisons black, white judges: Gender, race and class in the distribution of punishment in the criminal justice system paulista. CS [online]. 2017, n.21, pp.97-120. ISSN 2011-0324.

This paper aims to offer an intersectional analysis of gender attributes, race and class in the distribution of punishment, in São Paulo's criminal system. For both court decisions and interviews with imprisoned black women were analyzed in the year 2015. The work suggests that the criminal justice system works as racial domination instrument, because it is in its administration that manifests explicitly the intersection of the axes vulnerability -outlined by race, class and gender- in the production of categories of individuals punishable.

Keywords : Gender; Breed; Criminal justice; Intersectionality.
