    Transforming the Gender-Based Violence Movement: Increasing BIPOC Representation

    and Actualizing Accountability

  • The Problem

    The gender based violence and childhood sexual abuse fields are guided by white women’s cultural norms which contributes to an overrepresentation of white women.


    This is a structural issue that is inherently set up to fail women of color and hinder their thriving.

  • The Solution

    To address white supremacy and racism, we must recognize the historical contributions of women of color, create supportive equitable work environments that emphasize anti-racist practices, and maintain accountability structures.


    Intersectionality is critical to the advancement of this response.
