Standing Up for Vulnerable Female Prisoners in Canada
In honor of International Women’s Day, We the Females teamed up with caWsbar to hold our first public protest at the Grand Valley Institution for Women in Kitchener Ontario on Sunday March 7, 2021. More than 35 women (and a few men) stood up to protest against the state-sanctioned sexual assault that is happening in women’s prisons across Canada as a result of Justin Trudeau’s ideologically-driven Bill C-16. We enjoyed honks of support from a steady stream of cars. People stopped to ask questions and were genuinely concerned. CTV News showed up and interviewed former prisoner Heather Mason, who shed light on the dirty secret of what is happening in women’s prisons in Canada
