Sadly, for those of us working in the field of violence prevention, Rehtaeh’s story only reinforces a fact we have known for years: girls experience violence on a daily basis.

Canada should empower girls to be agents of change

As Canadian girls grow up, they’re told time and again that they can be whoever they want to be. The reality is far less ideal.
