Abstract / Description

It has been a difficult year to be a woman. We have seen the murders (and hideous disrespect) of Nicola Smallman and Bibaa Henry, the ‘unexplained’ death of Blessing Olusegun and the killing of Sarah Everard by one of those we are supposed to trust. Alongside police manhandling of women at her vigil and the true picture of sexual violence committed by officers, we have had to accept that the justice system cannot be relied on to protect any of us, especially women of colour.
