She Matters 4 Canada opens difficult dialogue on issues facing Indigenous women today, such as discrimination, marginalization, and the often taboo subject of gender-based violence, that only increases with silence and denial. 

Around the world, as many as 1 in every 3 women has been beaten, coerced into sex, or abused in some other way – most often by someone she knows, including by her husband or another male family member. (Oxfam) 

Indigenous women often bear the brunt of the violence. In Bolivia, an estimated 70% of women have experienced violence. (Red Contra La Violencia)

In Canada, Aboriginal women are killed at six times the rate of non-aboriginal women. Many have simply gone missing.
