Six Minutes discussed on The Electorette Podcast


That is when they say we'll men men experience violence just as much as women in that's absolutely not true i mean does not even close i forbid certificates don't bear that out sure i mean yes it's one in three women wanted six minutes no one in their right mind is saying that men don't experience what we're saying is that women experience violence at higher rates women are the ones that are more vulnerable to domestic violence the it's the partner ballots in his women who are experiencing these things at rates said call for something like the violence against women women it says women even if emanate and so i think that's one of the frustrating things when i hear that a lot from men specifically just want in there's no better way to say it but they just wanted three games upper hey you know they just want control of the situation it's what we experiencing it to yes we know obviously obviously you too in uncertainty that she do if you have but let's focus on the fact that we're talking about here now is women because that is the community that's most at risk in not to even break down you prefer incident women of color native american women aboriginal black lipid snappy dimic and i think the beautiful thing about the moment that we're in now as i think that people are paying more attention to the fact that allowed this happens quietly lana habits in silence i don't think the premise failing notion of has changed even jeff sessions at something like the private issue is a private matter i think that's still out there but i think more and more social media picks up this we have more conversations about it that we're going to start realizing that it's much more than a printed matter in fact it's a community issue in fact it's not a private matters factors someone is being abused in your neighborhood that's community matter might think we're starting to look at it like that more side really hopeful so what is the talk about women of color in this because one of the things that's been coming up now with intersection ality in the women's movement is you know women of color being kind of left out of the conversation it is and you know that just brings to mind chris brown right on our kellyanne size if i guess it's you know celebrity i know celebrity in in women of color and just i don't know where i'm going with that but yeah abso in what ways do you think the conversation could be different so that it's more inclusive to women of color yeah i mean i think i think it really all boils down to race in a mirror i think that we not we i shouldn't say what you but i think that america's still values women of color less of course i think that it's fair to say that too i think that it's fair to say that whiteness is still the prevailing concern i think even when it comes to me to the fact that it was wealthy celebrity white women that hashtag did even though it was a black woman who had been working in the movement for a decade into that to make popular i think that says something as well so i think that if we're going to if we're going to look at moving forward and having a larger conversation about women of color domestic violence black women specifically domestic violence the have to also have a conversation about why these stories aren't as important why missing black girls are less important than missing white girls in a why we just don't talk about the native american community at all all here rates of domestic violence are unbelievable i mean it's own interests down ding the violence that they've in the sexual violence at their facing the fact that.
