CFUW is writing to introduce clubs to a National Initiative of a Status of Women Subcommittee. The initiative is a research project titled, “Preventing and Responding to Violence Against Womenand Girls: Sexual Assault Policies in Post-Secondary Institutions in Canada”. The purpose of the project is to determine whether post-secondary institutions have sexual assault policies and, if so, how do the policies work in practice. We are inviting individual members to participate in the project as volunteers by completing a questionnaire. This requires doing internet research towards finding sexual assault policies at post-secondary institutions, examining the policies, and completing a questionnaire about the policies.
