Female Serial Killers
Phyllis Chesler’s new book follows the tragic story of Aileen Wuornos, the protagonist of the film Monster, which won Charlize Theron an Academy Award for Best Actress. The story takes us inside the mind of a female serial killer, a prostitute who murdered seven adult men. Women, even prostitutes, have the right to self-defense in theory, but the reality is far more complicated. This book challenges everything anyone has ever thought about prostitutes, serial killers and justice in America. Chesler’s an Emerita Professor of Psychology and Women’s Studies at City University of New York and the author of 20 books. She’s been featured in the NY Times, LA Times, Washington Post, HuffPost and more.
