Michèle Rouleau

Montréal


Michèle Rouleau has demonstrated an unfailing commitment in the fight to stop discrimination against Native women in Québec. As president of the Association des femmes autochtones du Québec, Michèle Rouleau coordinates cases dealing with family violence, the Indian Act, self-government, constitutional affairs and Aboriginal child care. 

She brought to light the discrimination experienced by certain women, making both the federal government and members of Native communities aware of this problem, and contributed towards ensuring that Native women who are married to non-Natives enjoy equal rights.
