MANSO Brief on Violence against Young Women and Girls in Canada

Several of MANSO’s members with specific expertise on women’s experiences of violence developed a brief in response to the invitation inform the Housing of Commons Standing Committee on Status of Women’s study on “Violence Against Young Women and Girls.” The Committee was concerned by the shortage of statistics and information on violence faced by young women and girls in Canada.

MANSO’s brief focuses on the experiences of newcomer women and girls in Manitoba, and proposes some recommendations for community engagement on this topic.

The brief was developed by Paula Migliardi (Sexuality Education and Research Centre), Evelyn Agedzi (Mount Carmel Clinic), Nina Condo (Elmwood Community Resource Centre), Susan Liddel-Delorme (NorWest Coop), Shereen Denetto (Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization of Manitoba), and Bequie Lake (MANSO).
