The issue of violence against Aboriginal women is my chosen subtopic that strongly contributes to the history of Aboriginal women’s struggle for rights and identity in Canada. To search relevant newspaper articles for this topic, the databases that were used were Lexis-Nexis Academic Universe, as well as Canadian Newsstand Major Dailies. The reason these two databases were chosen was because Canadian Newsstand offered articles from multiple newspapers in the country, therefore providing me with diverse news in different provinces other than Ontario. The article I obtained from Canadian Newsstand was Canada Called on to Stop Violence Against Aboriginal Women from the Leader Post newspaper in Saskatchewan. Lexis Nexus provided one article I chose titled AFN Chief Finds No Support From Premiers; Shawn Atleo Left Meeting With No Assurances to Help with Public Inquiry Into Violence Against Women from the Nanaimo Daily News in British Columbia. For my academic journals, I chose Women’s Studies International and Sociological Abstracts through ProQuest as databases to obtain the Male Partner Violence Against Aboriginal Women in Canada: An Empirical Analysis article and Gender, Sovereignty, Rights: Native Women’s Activism Against Social Inequality and Violence in Canada article. The reason I chose those two databases for my scholarly articles was because both were top databases for researching articles about indigenous women. All articles, upon reading, were informative, and provided sufficient information as guidelines for this assignment.
