This graphic depicts the connection and overlap between racial and sexual violence. The left side of the pyramid shows examples of sexual violence, and the right side shows examples of racial violence in five different categories: attitudes and beliefs, individual acts of prejudice, institutional discrimination, violence, and death. The examples outside the pyramid show where there is overlap between racial and sexual violence in these same categories. Attitudes and beliefs are the foundation that continue to uphold both individual acts of prejudice, and institutional and systemic discrimination, that contribute to violence and death. This is not an exhaustive list of examples, but is a starting point to help others understand the connection.
