According to About.com, after a few marches around nineteen twelve, Paul left NAWSA in nineteen fourteen as she co-founded the Congressional Union, later starting the National Woman 's Party in nineteen sixteen. As she found the parades to be unsuccessful, Paul resorted to picketing outside the White House, according to numerous sources. As most social protests go, picketing led the government to fine her twenty five dollars to which she, much like Anthony refused to pay. However, because this was much more of a prominent issue in that era of time, Paul and her fellow picketers were sent to the Occoquan Workhouse, a prison in Virginia. There, they were brutally treated and one was reported to be killed as they were sent to unsanitary, frigid, rat-infested cells regardless of age.

In the late 1960s, discovering that "sisterhood is powerful," women from Vancouver to Halifax began forming groups. The Vancouver Women 's Caucus was organized in 1968 and published The Pedestal from 1969 to 1973. The Montréal Women 's Liberation Movement was founded in 1969, the Front de libération des femmes du Québec published a feminist manifesto in 1970, and the Centre des femmes edited the first French-language radical feminist periodical, Québécoises deboutte!

In a discussion held at the University of Toronto, Pam Palmater (2015), an aboriginal lawyer, said that “the days of saying the federal government should save [aboriginal peoples] are long over. All of it should not be up to the state, but it starts at the top with accountability.” While Harper has agreed to keep raising awareness, he has not committed to a national inquiry; he said “it [is not] high on our radar, to be honest” (Fitzgerald 2015). It is comments such as this that deter the general public from caring about this dire issue; if the head of state does not acknowledge that this is a pressing issue, it is understandable to see why the rest of the country does not understand the severity and scope of the issue. “A national inquiry commissioned by the government would also change the

Words have the power to inspire others to create change in the world. An example of this can be found in Malala Yousafzai’s address to the Canadian Parliament on April 12, 2017. Yousafzai is a Pakistani advocate for female education who once feared for her life that her education would be taken away. When she was only fifteen years old, she was shot by Taliban militants for her stance on education. Since then, she has made a full recovery and has gained international recognition as a strong activist for female education.
