Program Title: WINGS #52-18 Native Women Challenge Canada
Description: In 1971, Janette Lavelle filed suit against a 19th century law that violated native women's human rights in Canada. She lost the case, but started a movement that included researching and raising a hue and cry about missing and murdered indigenous women and girls. Her daughter continues the story in a 2016 speech to the Motherhood Initiative for Research and Community Involvement.
Host(s): Frieda Werden
