More on Dec. 6: Including Women of Colour

Thanks to Black Coffee Poet for creating and posting this interview with Deb Singh of the Toronto Rape Crisis Centre about why we can’t forget indigenous women and other women of colour when observing the National Day of Action and Remembrance on Violence Against Women on December 6. It’s important to take into account Singh’s observations about why we can’t take a one-size-fits-all approach based on white women’s experiences in order to deal with violence against women across cultures.
