On this episode of the en(gender)ed podcast #SurvivorStories series, our guest is Angie Rivers, a police officer who is suing the Waterloo Regional Police service for systemic gender-based discrimination and sexual harassment by male members, senior officers and management of the Service. We speak with Angie today about what it means to be a woman in a male-dominated sector and how her sex and femininity contributed to make her and other women targets for workplace violence and discrimination. We also explore the outcomes of her case and the role that gender played in shaping decisions in her law suit.
During our conversation, Angie and I referenced the following resources and topics:
- Media and television's influence on our views of law enforcement
- Our interview with Nanette Chezum on officer-involved domestic violence
- The Oakland Police scandal
- Our interview with Jessica Taylor on "Why Women Are Blamed for Everything"
