The Benefits of an Intersectional Approach to Violence Against Women in Indigenous Communities

  • Tearney Johnston-Jones


Tearney recently graduated from the University of Waterloo’s Honours Arts and Business Co-op program, where she studied Legal Studies and Political Science. Throughout her studies, she developed her passion for legal analyses in the context of policy development and reform. In the academic sphere, she geared her focus towards feminist legal issues, and specifically those pertaining to prejudices against women. As she moves on to begin her Juris Doctor (JD) studies this fall, she plans to use her knowledge of the legal framework and the necessary cooperation between public-private enterprise, to assist in future consultations between industry and public institutions.
