Purpose: This 36-month project will work to address barriers in the justice system to improve the ways it responds to women reporting sexual assaults in Vancouver, British Columbia. Specifically, it will work with key stakeholders in the justice system to increase understanding of the intersecting vulnerabilities of women to sexual violence while generating systemic changes by implementing new practices and policies. In collaboration with women, community, and institutional partners, an action plan will be developed and implemented. The action plan will seek to break down stereotypes and implement policies intended to foster an environment where women who have experienced sexual assault are better supported in the justice system.
