IN THE HOUSE ~ Question Period ~ on the DisAbled Women's Network (DAWN) Project

Cheryl Hardcastle (Windsor Tecumseh) 

“Mr. Speaker, the DisAbled Women's Network notes the rates of sexual, physical, and verbal violence across Canada are at least three times higher for young women and girls living with disabilities, and violence prevention agencies are simply not given the proper resources. Women with disabilities have been completely forgotten. On this International Women's Day, will the government commit to taking leadership to address the enormous gaps in violence prevention policy and program delivery for this vulnerable population?â€�
