Battered Women's Support Services

All around the world, violence against girls and women continues as one of the most destructive and tolerated human rights violations, a result of historic, legal and social gendered inequality and discrimination.  Roots of violence against girls and women are deep and a defining indicator of societies well out of balance. One in three women worldwide has experienced physical and or sexual violence — mostly by an intimate male partner.  
 
Here at home, the statistics are a staggering reminder that we have a lot of work yet to do, because every six days a woman in Canada is killed by her intimate partner. Your gift today will make a difference!
 
For 35 years Battered Women’s Support Services (BWSS) has worked to end violence against women through awareness, empowerment, and action. BWSS provides a crisis line, support groups, legal advocacy as well as employment and skill-based training. The work of community engagement and strengthening is vast and includes supporting youth leadership and the larger community through our social enterprise. By joining #GivingTuesday, you will give the gift of hope and strength for a safer and empowering future for girls and women. Gift-giving is a powerful action to support girls and women who have experienced violence as a way to strengthen our communities in building one future without violence.
