Dr. Natalie Bennett, director of the UIC Women's Leadership and Resource Center, and Dr. Anna Guevarra, associate professor and director of the UIC Global Asian Studies Program, write in Ms. Magazine:
"It is essential to include women of color, including both Black and Asian American women, when we think about racist violence in America. Despite necessary correctives like the campaign, gendered violence is often treated as exceptional rather than as an organizing feature of maintaining U.S. racial hierarchy."
