But as police violence against black men and men of color has come into the national spotlight, we seldom hear how women of color are affected by police violence and sexual abuse.
But these aren't household names. And police violence against women is far from a new phenomenon. Why then, aren't we hearing the names of women who are targets of police violence? Or women who are victims of sexual abuse at the hands of police officers?
It's a question that New York attorney Andrea Ritchie set out to change in her new book, "Invisible No More: Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color."
Andrea Ritchie will be speaking about her book at the Cabral Center at Northeastern University tonight, and at the Harvard Bookstore tomorrow in conversation with Paul Butler, author of "Chokehold."
