Pamela conducted research and wrote a paper that examined four aspects of violence against women in Canadian Muslim communities: female genital cutting, forced marriage, violence against women in the family and femicide. She then developed a toolkit for community animation and trained members of CCMW from across Canada to facilitate discussions in their communities about violence against women and girls.
