The violent policing of the Sarah Everard vigil earlier this year left many asking the question: do police actually keep women safe? This session will begin from that catalyst moment, and expand into discussing how the police, prison and border regimes all serve to reinforce gendered oppression. We will also explore how the gendering and racialisation of “innocence” has been used as fuel for attacks on marginalised communities - from clampdowns on sex workers and undocumented migrants, to state violence against men of colour and against trans women.
