Issues of Our Time on Nafisatou Diallo

Deadline: November 13, 2011

JENdA: A Journal of Culture and African Women Studies

The case of Nafissatou Diallo has generated visceral reactions and heated discussions worldwide. A poor immigrant hotel worker allegedly raped by one of the most powerful men in the world, the director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Dominique Strauss-Kahn. As the shocking story of race, class, gender, and sexuality unfolded, we witnessed an intense media campaign to discredit Ms. Diallo by dredging up all manner of attacks that exploited racial, class, gender, and sexual stereotypes. To salvage the integrity of the powerful alleged rapist, the credibility of the poor lowly immigrant victim must be destroyed.
