Looking at the injustices that are engulfing marginalized communities, a clear pattern emerges: how deeply gender is woven throughout all of these struggles. Our carceral punishment system, so clearly weighted against people of color, also comes down heavily on women and LGBTQIA+ people. This discrimination and its harsh consequences are both historical, and very much in the present moment, unfolding around us in real time.
