Frequently bought together
“This moving, well-sourced book is essential reading for anyone who cares about social injustice.” —Publishers Weekly
"McDiarmid's touching, poignant account intricately details the backgrounds of many of the victims, and their families and loved ones. She deftly explains the continuous circle of blatant racism, depression, hopelessness, poverty, and addiction faced by the women, brought on by lack of opportunity and, frankly, by the lack of care from the government." —Booklist
“These murder cases expose systemic problems . . . By examining each murder within the context of Indigenous identity and regional hardships, McDiarmid addresses these very issues, finding reasons to look for the deeper roots of each act of violence.” —New York Times Book Review
“A searing account of how systemic racism robbed these victims of justice and continues to endanger Indigenous women and girls in Canada.” —Paste

This is a story, including so many stories, that are similar, about the reality of missing and murdered indigenous women. This is NOT just a problem in Canada, sadly. So many things need to change.

The stories of these victims is heartbreaking. It’s maddening that so little was done to protect them and give justice. I cannot imagine being the families of these missing and murdered women.
The book was well written. I gave it 4 stars because it jumps around a bit and I found it confusing to keep track of the different people and stories.
