Whose Safety? Women of Color and the Violence of Law Enforcement
Published by the American Friends Service Committee and the Committee on Women, Population, and the Environment, Philadelphia, May 2001. Copyright © 2001 Anannya Bhattacharjee.

This comprehensive research report documents how women of color, both immigrant and U.S-born, face violence and the abuse of authority from law-enforcement agencies - from local police to the prison system to INS raids. Drawing on interviews with nearly 100 anti-violence activists as well as published sources, "Whose Safety?" outlines community interactions with enforcement agencies, the impact of enforcement violence on key areas of women's lives, and current anti-violence movements.
