Invisible no more : police violence against black women and women of color
Ritchie, Andrea J.2017
Articles
While public awareness of police brutality is growing, individual black men - including Eric Garner, Michael Brown and Freddie Gray - have been the focus of these media-driven narratives. Black women and women of colour - including Sandra Antor, Rekia Boyd, Gynnya McMillen, Rosann Miller and Alesia Thomas - are being racially profiled, targeted for sexual assault and killed by police, but their stories have remained largely untold. This book reveals a movement that has been building largely in the shadows of mainstream campaigns for racial justice and police accountability. Informed by more than twenty years of research and advocacy, Andrea Ritchie shows how women's experiences with law enforcement are uniquely influenced by race, gender, gender identity, sexuality, class and ability.
