The State party should ensure that its public policies and legislation related to gender and sexual-based violence are explicitly attentive to the heightened risks lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (LBT) women, especially Indigenous women and women with multiple marginalized identities, as well as gender diverse and Two Spirit people face with regard to violence. Such policies and legislation should also ensure that sufficient resources and effective mechanisms are in place to strengthen methods of reporting, responding to, and monitoring instances and rates of sexual violence against these high-risk communities.
