The idea of adding women to the security forces to solve police brutality is, a priori , a tragic reduction of a structural, institutional and, in some specific cases, constitutional problem. Not only are we not facing a problem that can be read mobile phone number list exclusively from a gender perspective, but, if it were, the gender "type of perspective" that the article proposes is nothing more than a change of image of what it wants to be modified and, in turn, reinforces mobile phone number list other narratives of brutality that should not be reduced to gender either. Let's review the CNN headline. Who mobile phone number list are "the women" ? And who are "the women" who ask for "more women" in different spaces and positions of power? Furthermore, who are "the women" who access these places of power? These questions are answered, fundamentally, in a very determined representation of «the woman»: the mobile phone number list white woman, from the middle and upper classes, fundamentally elitist. This representation is as archaic as it is tricky: it constitutes an idea of "women" that responds to a macho imaginary. On the one hand, the name "women" omits and dilutes racialization. That racialization that – as we will see – also speaks to us of a class mobile phone number list matrix. Women who have relatives (both male and female) in prisons should be asked, and who not only know the internal reality of imprisonment, but are themselves exposed to a series of abuses at mobile phone number list the hands of male and female officers , if the solution to all the scenarios they must face is to add women to the system.
