I first heard Sherry when she made a very powerful and compelling presentation on her experience with harassment in the RCMP to a panel of MPs and Senators in Canada’s Parliament buildings. She conveyed personal insight, courage, determination and leadership. She proved that she could walk “through the fire”, come out the other side, sustain perspective and build something constructive out of what had been a terrible experience. She spoke beautifully. She knows things about life and she knows how to communicate.
March to May 2013 I provided witness and written testimony for the Senate Committee on the Status of Women and for Senate Mitchell’s committee on the bullying/harassment and sexual harassment women in the RCMP face everyday.
