Women and girls missing and murdered cases have increase yearly. This has brought about emerge of organizations that help to fight for women and girls’ rights. MMWIG is a worldwide disaster as Dawn Lavell Harvard refers it. The truth and reconciliation commission has joined forces in the missing and murdered women and girls’ cases. There is a contrast on the reported cases of the murdered or missing females. Women groups have reported over 4000cases by 2014 while the Canadian police have reported just 1200 cases (Brady 918-922). The difference is statistics may be due to ineffective database and inappropriate clarification and grouping of such cases by the police. Violence has played a major role to the missing then the federal government and the women organizations will be able to curb the threat at hand. If the restructuring of the inquiry will be a help then let it be done. Women should be given equal rights as men to reduce the MMIWG cases. Works Cited Arscott Jane.
