Re: “Systems That Oppress Women Create Dangerous Circumstances for Girls of Color

Holly this is an excellent article. It defines and exposes the practices in OPD that, through the years, were normalized. I worked for OPD and saw, first hand, the mistreatment of females, both sworn and civilian. I heard about how female employees were sexually exploited. The culture at OPD was horrific for any woman that did not acquiesce to the patrichial environment which existed. Than you for exposing this culture, which hopefully, will create a new norm.
