Every year 160-200 women are killed in Canada. We know about 100 children are murdered every year as well. What are we doing about it?
Do you even know what is going on in your back yard? next door? What about in your own house? Do you use derogatory language when talking about women, allow sexist video games in your home, tell blonde jokes?
We have to change our language and the way we talk about women, the way we label them, dissect them and demean them. I’ve spent the last six years working on The List of 4,000 missing and murdered women and children in Canada-3 years on my newly released book Rampage:the pathology of an epidemic. For five years now we have been doing the Memory March-a walk/vigil to honour the women and children. But for many years before that I have worked in my own way to help ease the violence against women by doing Spirit to Heal workshops, producing plays with an anti-violence message and by my other writings.
I would love to come to your group meeting, your club, organization or event and speak about the issues we are facing and how we can change the way we think, how we can make a difference.
