For Indigenous girls, the sex talk is a matter of safety

 


For Dawn Lavell-Harvard, the conversation about sex with her young daughters ended up being closely intertwined with her work at the Native Women's Association of Canada (NWAC).

The discussion came up while Dawn was in the car with her three daughters, travelling down the highway in Eastern Canada. Because of her role as head of NWAC, Dawn had to interrupt the road trip to take calls from the media, to comment on the inquiry into the missing and murdered Aboriginal women. Within the confines of the car, she found herself talking about the sex trade in front of her children.
