Deathscapes

‘While the settler state distorts the rape of black women and silences women’s accounts of harm, Indigenous women have not been silent. Black women know the Australian state was built on such violence and that the instruments of law, the police and courts, can never really be trusted to protect black women’s bodies. We know that the Australian legal system’s tolerance of sexual violence towards Indigenous women is deeply seated in Australian history.’
