For them, this tragedy Has no reality except perhaps for the native women they may see downtown with a hlacken- cd eye." The letter said there were 29 cases of assault on women in Inuvik in W71 and 1972 in which the victims laid charges against their assailants. Police laid charges in an additional five cases. However, there was a total of 213 complaints received from wives who refused lo lay charges. My concern lies with (lie 213.
