On September 20, women and men from all walks of life will marched in solidarity with others across Canada and internationally for a dual purpose: to end violence against women and reclaim the streets for all.
This theme recognizes that when women are safe from violence, our streets are safer for all people. Domestic violence, sexual assaults, female homicides and missing and murdered women all reflect a culture which objectifies, disrespects and dishonours the value of women. Violence against women reflects cultural values that perpetuate violence against marginalized people, in all its forms.
The CUPE Manitoba Human Rights Committee was again proud to march side-by-side with our sisters and brothers through the streets of Winnipeg.
