No more Stolen Sisters - stickers in Yonge-Dundas Square

Large stickers of ladies are posted on the columns of Yonge-Dundas Square with signs that say "No more Stolen Sisters". The pieces are a protest in support of Indigenous women in Canada.

Amnesty International website says, "Stolen Sisters: A human rights response to discrimination and violence against Indigenous women in Canada. Violence against women, and certainly violence against Indigenous women, is rarely understood as a human rights issue. To the extent that governments, media and the general public do consider concerns about violence against women, it is more frequent for it to be described as a criminal concern or a social issue. It is both of those things of course. But it is also very much a human rights issue."
