Multicultural council to discuss racial attacks on women
WATERBURY COUNTY, Okla. – A Waterbury County community group is discussing the impact that a growing list of racial slurs are having on women and girls.
The group, the Watersbury Women’s Associa김천안마tion, began a weekly gathering with a plan to raise awareness of the comments about women that girls are subject to.
“I believe that these comments, or the word ‘nigger,’ it’s in the vocabulary of some girls that they aren’t allowed in this communi호 게임ty,” said WVAW’s Joanne Jones.
WATERBURY COUNTY, Okla. – A Watersbury County community group is discussing the impact that a growing list of racial slurs are having on women and girls.
There has been a spike in hate crimes targeting black women in the last few years as well as a lot of comments made about white women. Jones says a community is changing without the community leadership acknowledging it.
“It’s important for the community leaders to look at it and admit it’s happening, but I’m willing to give them time because it isn’t going away. It is growing.”
A recent report from Women’s Voices Okla., a woman-led, non-profit organization working to eliminate violen블랙 잭ce against women in schools, found more than 577 reported incidents of verbal abuse of women and girls in 2014. The total came to over 800 incidents, mostly against black women.
