The Canadian parliamentary cross-party effort to help ‘the most at-risk women in the world right now’
A group of six MPs from all parties has been working behind the scenes since mid-2022 to bring nine Afghan women parliamentarians to safety in Canada. After one of the women was murdered, the Canadians chose to go public with their efforts.
The group of MPs who have been working behind the scenes includes Bloc Québécois MP Alexis Brunelle-Duceppe, left, Green Party Leader Elizabeth May, NDP MP Heather McPherson, Conservative MP Alex Ruff, and Liberal MPs Marcus Powlowski and Leah Taylor Roy.
