The study looked at unwanted attention, sexual comments, close contact or online remarks

The snow melts in Iqaluit, Nunavut, on April 25, 2015. A new survey from Statistics Canada says that more than one-third of women in the northern territories have been subjected to unwanted sexual behaviour in a public place.More than one-third of women in Canada’s three northern territories have been subjected to unwelcome sexual attention in a public place, says a survey from Statistics Canada.

“These behaviours stem from social norms, structures and beliefs that are similar to those which underlie sexual assault,” it says. Roughly the same proportion had the same experience in their workplace, as did nearly one-quarter of women and 16 per cent of men online. About seven per cent of women reported harassment in all three places – a number three times higher than the figure for men.

Cotter suggested that’s because Nunavut has a lower percentage of people living in the capital. While sexual assault is often committed by someone known to the victim, unwanted sexual attention is more often a product of the anonymity afforded by larger centres.

Same with women who live in the city, or the burbs. I know more females who have been sexually harassed or sexually assaulted then who have not been. The problem is ongoing everywhere. More work needs to be done to teach boys not to assault women/girls and respect them

We need more women of all colours in power. This is a country without real leaders.

By whom? This deserves in-depth study. And perhaps it's effect on the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women. There may be a link.
