Jessica Pliley is an assistant professor of women’s history at Texas State University-San Marcos. She is at Yale as the Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery Fellow at the Gilder Lerhman Center. Professor Pliley has authored an article exploring the feminist politics within the League of Nations Committee on the Trafficking of Women and Children in the Journal of Women’s History and another article that examines how concerns about white slavery served to bolster some women’s rights advocates’ claims that women be included in the federal immigration service at the turn of the century. We talk with her about her book manuscript, Beyond White Slavery: Policing Women and the Growth of the FBI, 1900-1941.
