Jennifer Dunn

Status of Women committee  Thank you very much for your questions. I did plan on sending a brief in as well, with detailed recommendations, so I can definitely do that. Your question to me was around the legislation to end men's violence against women. We recommend including amendments to the Criminal Cod

Status of Women committee  Yes. When we talk about appropriate levels of funding, we are referring to appropriate levels of core funding. Right now, our core funding comes from the provincial government. We have funding from the federal government as well, but typically the funding that we receive on that

Status of Women committee  When we're talking about young women and girls specifically, they see a lot through media, online—I touched on this when I was speaking—in schools, and even with their families. Young girls are growing up learning that their worth comes from being sexually desirable to young men.

Status of Women committee  There has been work done at our centre around that topic. I regret that I do not have an answer at my fingertips, but I would be able to provide it to [Technical difficulty—Editor] if you would like.

Jennifer Dunn

Status of Women committee  I would like to suggest that it would be of the utmost importance for the federal and provincial governments to work together to create consistency across the country. That would be my best [Technical difficulty—Editor]. The results of what has happened to a woman in B.C. would b

Justice committee  Thank you very much, Mr. Chair. My name is Jennifer Dunn, and I am the executive director of the London Abused Women's Centre. In Tuesday's session for this study, it was said that what is needed is less law, fewer statistics and more information from the ground from the most d

Jennifer Dunn

Justice committee  Thank you very much. This issue impacts all of society. This is not what we want for girls in our community. We need to remember that men do not deserve paid access to female bodies. The human body is not a commodity to be bought and sold. Women report to us every single day wh

February 11th, 2022Committee meeting

Jennifer Dunn

Justice committee  Thank you very much for the question. The pandemic has had a serious effect for all Canadians. Specific to women and girls, it has been very difficult, because when we notice periods of what I'll call “lockdown” or where women and girls are told to minimize their traffic and whe

Justice committee  Thank you, Chair. Thank you to the committee for inviting me here today. It is nice to see you all again. My name is Jennifer Dunn. I am the executive director of the London Abused Women's Centre, or LAWC, here in London, Ontario. LAWC is a feminist organization that supports

Justice committee  When we consider human trafficking as a conditional sentence based on the section of the Criminal Code you mentioned, it really undermines the seriousness of this particular crime. We know that in London, Ontario, for example, we are considered a hub for human trafficking. A lot

Justice committee  When we're talking about sexual assault, the first thing that comes to my mind is how dangerous it is for a women to even get to the point where she's ready to report a sexual assault. It takes so much courage on her part to even get to that point, knowing that she's going to be

April 29th, 2022Committee meeting

Jennifer Dunn

Justice committee  First of all, I don't particularly understand how an individual charged with trafficking for material benefit or an individual who is charged with sexual assault could be considered non-violent. It doesn't make sense to me. Sexual assault and trafficking are public safety issues

April 29th, 2022Committee meeting

Jennifer Dunn

Justice committee  Thank you again. This is way bigger than today. It's much bigger than this bill by itself. I think we need to talk about the issues and the systemic change that needs to happen before this hits the court and before we're talking about it in this situation here today. We need
