Posters focus on respecting women

October 26, 2012 – The Nunatsiavut Government has launched a campaign focusing on developing public awareness on the need to respect women.

An initiative of the Nunatsiavut Government’s Status of Women, and funded by the provincial Aboriginal Violence Prevention grants program, the I am a Kind Man poster series was unveiled today in Makkovik during a breakfast as part of Violence Prevention Month.

“The campaign is aimed at Inuit men in hopes that they will acknowledge their responsibility in helping to end violence against women,” says Nunatsiavut’s Health and Social Development Minister Patricia Kemuksigak, who’s also responsible for the Status of Women.

Each of the five posters, developed by the Nunatsiavut Government’s Resource Centre, contains images of Inuit men, women and children along with positive messages. Three sets of posters will be distributed throughout Nunatsiavut, as well as Happy Valley-Goose Bay, North West River and St. John’s.
