Towards the end of the memoir, when her family moved to New York for a better chance at life, Maureen fell victim to distraction. After graduating high school, she applied for college, but while instead of succeeding, she never really applied herself. She ended up living with her homeless parents, and even though she picked up small jobs here and there, they never really lasted. She started smoking and ended up stabbing her own mother and going to jail. You can say all of this happened because she never had to pick up her own weight, so when it came time for her to get out into the world for herself, she crumbled.
9. What are the barriers faced by women in accessing justice and services? Canada is the dream destination for many immigrants. Federal government reported, the number of immigrants entering Canada in 2012 were over 250,000 being one of the highest proportion of foreign-born population in any country. Immigrants who enter Canada generally have no understanding or knowledge of the family justice system and face some serious hindrances in gaining access and learning the system, and arguably, the single group of immigrants that face the greatest barriers are immigrant women who are victims of domestic violence.
Pontellier, "she hasn't been associating with any one. She has abandoned her Tuesdays at home, has thrown over all her acquaintances, and goes tramping about by herself, moping in the street-cars, getting in after dark. I tell you she's peculiar.

We never knew how she depended on the necessities which depend on human interaction" (Collier 144).
She still didn’t say anything, so I walked off. On the way home in the car my friends asked, “Did you get her number?” I told them she was acting like she didn’t want to talk. One of the girls texted my friend, and gave him the number to the girl I was trying to talk to. She told him that she wanted me to text her. We’ve
Aboriginal women suffered in contemporary Canada, as they dealt with racism, sexism, and domestic violence. Due to the Aboriginals’ fairly low status amongst the Canadian population, murders and missing cases of Aboriginals were disregarded, making them vulnerable targets. Women were considered inferior to men, so Native women living in Canada dealt with the worst of the crimes committed, the crime rate against them being disturbingly high. Approximately 70% of Missing Cases were Murder Cases, death being as a result of homicide or negligence, 4% being cases of suspicious death, when authorities regarded the case as natural or accidental, whilst the family and or band viewed it as suspicious and 9% were cases where the nature of the case was unknown. Not only did the authorities silence these issues, but when these women were molested, the women themselves kept quiet, as it was a personal issue, and they feared they would be shunned, rather than the molester themselves.
Money spent on one prisoner can vary from $50,000 to more than $80,000, more than what is spent on one student in Canada. Harsher punishments were also set for younger criminals, which affects my generation greatly.
