Murdered women's inquiry must confront barriers indigenous women face in Canadian society

 


A chairwoman of Vancouver's annual memorial march for missing and murdered aboriginal women says she's concerned a national inquiry will leave out a crucial issue — feminism.

Fay Blaney, who co-chairs the February 14 Women's Memorial March Committee, said the starting point of an inquiry must be the barriers indigenous women face in Canadian society.

Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett is touring the country to meet with families, survivors and aboriginal representatives to hear what they want from an inquiry.
