ISBN: 9780807088982

A timely examination of the ways Black women, Indigenous women, and other women of color are uniquely affected by racial profiling, police brutality,and immigration enforcement. Invisible No Moreis a timely examination of how Black women, Indigenous women, and women of color experience racial profiling, police brutality, and immigration enforcement. Placing stories of individual women-such as Sandra Bland, Rekia Boyd, Dajerria Becton, Monica Jones, and Mya Hall-in the broader context of the twin epidemics of police violence and mass incarceration, it documents the evolution of movements centering women's experiences of policing and demands a radical rethinking of our visions of safety-and the means we devote to achieving it.
