Thank you for these extra few seconds. We will circulate the other information later.
We recommend that the training start from an intersectional analysis to deconstruct the myths and stereotypes about women with disabilities and deaf women victims of sexual assault.
For clause 2, we recommend that the training and seminars be developed by women's groups with expertise on marginalized women, such as DAWN Canada.
With respect to clause 3, we understand that there is a concern about judicial independence. However, we think it is important that all judges attend these seminars, that the seminars be evaluated, and that the evaluations be shared with the designers and the groups that developed the seminars in order to improve them.
This will also ensure that the systemic discrimination experienced by the most marginalized women remains at the heart of the discussions. Deaf women and women with disabilities, including those who live at the intersection of different forms of oppression, should participate in the seminars and training.
