it’s pretty common for people discussing rape culture within feminist discourse to conveniently leave out disabled girls, but this is just a casual reminder that disabled women are far more likely to be sexually assaulted, abused or raped than able-bodied women. on top of that, 50% of deaf girls and 54% of deaf boys have been sexually abused or assaulted. so please stop leaving us out of your discussion about rape culture.

Free Marissa Now stands with the U.N. Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD)’s assessment of the US government’s persistent pattern of racial violence and discrimination, including in the area of policing, prisons, and prosecution. We also add that racial violence in the US intersects with patterns of gender violence as well. Marissa Alexander, a black mother of three from Florida who was attacked, strangled, and threatened with murder by her abusive husband, and who fired a warning shot that saved her own life without injuring anyone else, was not allowed to use the Stand Your Ground law to affirm her right to self-defense. Ms. Alexander now faces the chilling possibility of a mandatory 60 years in prison if she is found guilty in her upcoming December trial. She has asked “If you do everything to get on the right side of the law, and it’s a law that does not apply to you, where do you go from there?” One place to start is a major overhaul of the racist US criminal justice system and a plan to repair the communities that it has devastated. CERD’s condemnation of the racism embedded within US policies and institutions is an important step, and we urge the US government to take serious measures to address their findings.
