We are passionate about ending violence against women and girls in our lifetime. Here are some of our past special projects for International Women’s Day, Violence Prevention Week, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and more.
You Can Just Walk Away, Some Women Can’t
Please, Don’t Walk Away.
The International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, November 25th 2018 was also the first day of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence. Battered Women’s Support Services asked you to please, don’t walk away, give the gift of safety.
Home Sweet Home
Every week a woman in Canada is killed by her intimate partner.
For thousands of women and their children across Canada there is no “Home Sweet Home”. Five children in every Canadian school classroom have witnessed their mother being assaulted by their father-figure.
Together, we can make a real change in the lives of women and girls in our community
100% of your donation supports ending violence against women and girls. Because safety changes everything.
March 8th is International Women’s Day
In 2018, we asked you to commit to #KNOWMORE
After studying decades of domestic violence deaths, Battered Women’s Support Services has found that the vast majority of women who died were not connected to a community advocate. We asked the BC and Federal governments to invest more in community-based support services.
Prevention of Violence Against Women Week
Each year we commemorate Prevention of Violence Against Women Week held during the third week of April.
During Prevention of Violence Against Women Week we engage our on and offline communities in violence prevention by remembering we all have a role to play in preventing violence against girls and women as individuals, in our relationships, in our community, and in society.
