Welcome back! This week we’ve got social science research on missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada, LGBT advocacy across the globe, and how women use headphones to avoid harassment.

There’s Research on That!:

Injustice and Indigenous Women in Canada,” by Allison Nobles. In light of a historic inquiry into missing and murdered women in Canada that determined the nation committed genocide against Indigenous women, we rounded up research on these missing and murdered women.


LGBT Advocacy Goes Global,” by Isabel Arriagada. Recent research in Social Forces finds that LGBT-specific international organizations play a key role in whether nations adopt LGBT-friendly policies, more so than international organizations broadly focused on human rights.


Headphones Help Avoid Harassment,” by Neeraj Rajasekar. The Atlantic talks with Laura Logan about how women use headphones to avoid harassment.
