Red dresses hang at Regina Beach to bring attention to missing, murdered indigenous women

 


Artist Carol Daniels hung up a red dress about a week ago after seeing a social media post by the Conservatives asking if people agreed with Muslim women wearing a niqab.

"I thought, 'Oh my God, over these past several months, we have had hundreds of thousands of Canadians saying yes, we need an inquiry, we need answers to the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women and, that, you haven't even talked about,'" Daniels said.

She said she started talking to her friends and neighbours about the issue of murdered and missing indigenous women and how the issue was reflected in the federal campaigns.
