‘We’ll make sure we’re heard’: New Quebec feminist coalition wants improved access to justice


A newly formed feminist coalition is promising to make Quebec’s political parties prioritize the fight to end violence against women.

The Coalition féministe contre la violence envers les femmes, which brings together 15 women’s groups, was launched Sunday, four days before International Women’s Day.

With a provincial election coming up this fall, the group wants to meet with all the party leaders in order to rally them to their cause.
