Not Throw Away Women: Black and Indigenous Women Disrupt Violence

On today’s show we’re exploring how some women have been dehumanized to the point of indifference. We’ll learn how one community is undoing the silence around the violence women of color face. We’ll also hear about how serial killers were able to hunt down mostly Black women for three decades in South Los Angeles. Then we’ll take you to the Yucatan where pregnant indigenous women struggle under a health care system failing to provide proper medical care.

Featured Guest(s): Rochelle Robinson, Making Contact Fellow; Kimberly Smith; Gabrielle Rae Travis, Her Resilience Community Outreach Coordinator; Margaret Prescod , founder of Black Coalition Fighting Back Serial Murders and host of KPFK’s Sojourner Truth; and Nick Broomfiled.
