Explores female gang affiliation in Winnipeg through interviews with representatives of different agencies in Manitoba whose job involves intervening in the lives of gang women. Suggests that female gang members typically come for poor socioeconomic backgrounds, survive "dysfunctional" childhoods, have suffered extensive abuse, live in deteriorating inner-city areas, and are predominantly Aboriginal - that is to say, from a marginalized ethnic group. Concludes that female gang members have been largely overlooked in gang research and in prevention and intervention programming.

Discusses the media hype over the supposed eruption of violence among young women, as well as the Young Offenders Act and how it is failing youth. Argues that young people are best served by supportive and proactive interventions, not by incarceration. Speaks of the importance of prevention and the need for empowering and supportive services for youth not only within the criminal justice system, but in the child welfare, educational, medical, and mental health systems as well, touching on the fact that this type of prevention is far more cost-effective than current criminal justice approaches. Also deals with the problems of abuse suffered in custody and the lack of adequate services for female offenders and young women in the justice system.

The Saskatchewan First Nations’ Women’s Commission (SFNWC) is the recognized regional voice for the advancement of First Nations’ women’s and children’s rights in Saskatchewan. The SFNWC is committed to the development and sustenance of healthy communities by which all First Nations people benefit. The SFNWC takes the lead on certain issues that are considered “women’s and children’s issues” in mainstream society, although not dictated as such in First Nations communities because First Nations philosophy emphasizes collective as opposed to individual rights.

 

Historically, since the 1960’s First Nations’ Women in Saskatchewan have come together to discuss a variety of issues and the poor living conditions in which they had to endure. The Saskatchewan First Nations’ Women’s Commission (SFNWC) was formed in 2000, first as a Council, and in February 2004, the Chiefs-in-Assembly voted for the FSIN Convention Act to be amended to include the SFNWC as the seventh Commission. The FSIN Women’s Act was ratified at the June 2004 Chiefs-in-Assembly and is a formal piece of legislation that validates the ongoing movement of Saskatchewan First Nations’ Women.

 

Honoring the Treaties is a priority for Saskatchewan First Nations’ women's groups. The mandate of the Saskatchewan First Nations Women’s Commission is the development of First Nation Women’s rights and advocate to develop women’s strategic initiatives while respecting the Treaty process. In the past we have ensured this vision is met through:
