NWAC has a particular interest in this appeal because it is concerned about the high levels of sexual exploitation and sexual trafficking of Aboriginal women and girls occurring right across Canada. Aboriginal women, women in low income situations, those suffering from mental health and adictions issues, are working in prostitution because of systemic racism and classism, as well as a fundamental power imbalance and issues of inequality which are at the root of prostitution.
