The National Institute of the Study of Violence’s main focus is prevention. We feel that our work is important, and will make a difference in the community. Our secondary goal is to focus attention on the violence experienced by women in America. Everyone is an interested party in the cause we are fighting. The prevention of violence directly affects the stability of families and the productivity of the nation.
RCMP revealed Thursday a shocking number — nearly 1,200 aboriginal
women have been murdered or gone missing in Canada in the past 30 years.
RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson said most of those women — about 1,000 — are murder victims.
rest, about 186, are disappearances, still logged in police files
across the country, and in a majority of those — some 160 missing person
cases — the RCMP says authorities “ought to” suspect foul play. The
others have been determined to be disappearances for “reasons unknown.” click on headline
