In Mourning and Rage / Suzanne Lacy, Leslie Labowitz, Bia Lowe (Los Angeles, 1977)
December 1977, Los Angeles waited in suspense as each new victim of the
"Hillside Strangler" was broadcast on the evening's news. Soon there
were ten women, strangled and dumped on the sides of roads. Media
sensationalized these victims' lives, contributing to a climate of fear
and superstition. In spite of a growing body of literature on the
politics of crimes against women, stories focused instead on the
randomness of the violence.
