My overview of the launch of HMPPS Women in Prisons Workplace conference 2019. A few words can encapsulate a lot.
Surrounded by a sea of whiteness. I know I standout. My blackness is heavy laden. If I do not speak, I will drown.
Women ‘only’ are allowed. As though there is only one type of woman. Black women stay back. No room for your gendered racialisation here.
Will the organisation ever change? With white privilege. Sadly will things will remain the same. If HMPPS does not consider. Women are not all the same.
The question posed by Sojourner Truth 1851, is still relevant today.
