Stop letting the system assault victims of sexual violence over and over
The Senate’s failure to pass groundbreaking legislation is just the latest example of women being betrayed by the very institutions they reach out to for help.
The Senate rose for the summer without passing Bill C-337, a private member’s bill which had received unanimous support in the House of Commons in May 2017.
