Two other women, also breast cancer survivors, said their husbands left them after they were diagnosed. Both had to have mastectomies (in case anyone doesn’t know, this is the surgical operation to remove one or both breasts).

The first woman said her husband told her that he would rather see her dead than see her lose her breasts. The second woman had her operation and waited all day to be picked up by her husband, who never arrived. By nightfall, one of the nurses offered to give her a ride, and she came home to find the house empty.

Obviously, these are extreme cases of a man’s reaction to his wife’s breast cancer, but this is what I see when I see the “I ♥ Boobies” bracelets. I see love of the body parts, not the person being treated—not the patient, not the victim, not the survivor.

Aboriginal women ask Stephen Harper: Am I next?

Am I next?

That’s the question aboriginal women are asking Prime Minister Stephen Harper in a new online campaign to renew pressure on his government to call a national inquiry into murdered and missing indigenous women.

Coming on the heels of Harper’s "sociological phenomenon" blunder, the campaign is the brainchild of Holly Jarrett. She’s the cousin of Loretta Saunders, a 26-year-old Inuit student at Saint Mary’s University who was murdered earlier this year. At the time of her death, Saunders was working on her thesis on murdered and missing aboriginal women.

"She had come through a lot of the same kind of struggles that a lot women affected by colonialism and residential school stuff," Jarrett told PressProgress Friday, a day after  launching the Am I Next campaign.

"We wanted to move it forward for her. She was really passionate about telling her story, to stand up and tell the brutal truth," said Jarrett, an Inuit from the Labrador coast who’s now based in Hamilton, Ont.

After organizing one of the largest petitions at change.org calling on the government to launch a public inquiry into hundreds of missing and murdered aboriginal women, Jarrett decided to launch the Am I Next campaign.

It’s inspired by the Inuktitut word ain, a term of endearment for someone you love in her native language.

Here are some of the faces of the viral campaign:

This is what comes to mind when people try to tell me there is no (or less) racism in Canada. Hundreds of aboriginal and First Nations women are missing, abused, and murdered, and our country and GOVERNMENT doesn’t care. It doesn’t. Indigenous women don’t matter to our government and it’s horrifying.  Please click some of the above mentioned links and learn about these women and this campaign. 

PLEASE SHARE

This article was posted on CBC last year. This is my hometown & local community. There are 2 serial rapists on the loose, raping & beating Aboriginal women as the men declare they don’t deserve their rights. The police are doing nothing and these men are still at large.

This is a local politician’s ad for the 2014 election in my citydisgusting. The amount of people who voted for her based on the ‘gravy train’ platform is disgusting. That our local paper agreed to run it is disgusting.

Working addictions I have seen the aftermath of the horrors Aboriginal women are forced to deal with on a daily basis, especially those who are part of the urban homeless population. These men & ladies usually end up on the streets, through no fault of their own, because of the systematic racism present in Canadian society. Being a young Métis women I have experienced (on a lesser severity) racism first hand myself, much of it from the non-Aboriginal side of my family. 

I love Canada but this is not a perfect country by any means. Many, many Aboriginal issues remain ignored and swept under the rug by out government. Please share this. Read & educate yourself. Please add any relevant links to get the talks going about what is happening to our Brothers & Sisters.

Tomorrow is September 11th. If you see somebody being Islamophobic toward Muslims or non-Muslim Arabs and Sikhs, don’t stand by and do nothing. Shut that shit down!

It’s smaller on the outside.
Yeah, it’s a bit more exciting when you go the other way.
