INTRO SCRIPT:
Indigenous women in Canada are five times more likely than other women to die as a result of violence. The official number of missing and murdered indigenous women and girls in Canada since 1980 is 520. Of 520 women and girls, approximately two thirds were murdered, and about one-quarter are still missing. Indigenous grassroots activists and communities put the number of cases closer to 1800. The Native Women's Association of Canada points out that even working with the official number, 520, taken proportionately, that would equal about 18,000 murdered and missing women among Canada's white population. What is being done to stop the violence?
