MISSING AND MURDERED INDIGENOUS WOMEN

As Celeste Liddle notes at Eureka Streetviolence against Indigenous women is ignored until it can be weaponised against Indigenous communities.  Dr Hannah McGlade explores some history and policy responses.

This also isn’t a peculiarly Australian problem — there’s a remarkable dearth of statistics on missing and murdered native American women; lawmakers at state and federal level are starting to respond as Indigenous communities demand action. The Canadian government recently conducted a major inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls; last week Toronto police held a conference on improving how front line officers deal with and work with Indigenous women and girls.
