Thank you, Madam Chair.
I'd like to thank all three witnesses for their extremely compelling presentations.
I will start with Ms. Kratochvil.
Ms. Kratochvil, I was quite moved by your remarks. Could you tell us more about your story?
How were you able to help yourself as a victim of violence, and other women seeking help in your shelter? How does your courage and experience help other women come forward and seek help in the shelter where you're working?
