Every woman has the need and right to feel physically secure, and security for women should be assured through sound legal practices. Women’s March Canada stands behind the principle that women are not to be held accountable for actions that are outside their control — particularly regarding all forms of assault — and that fair legal action must be applied to prevent these crimes.”

The Grandmothers Advocacy Network (GRAN) is a network of volunteers advocating to improve the lives of sub-Saharan grandmothers, vulnerable children & youth.
