Cowboy Smithx is a man of many talents. He is a writer, actor and filmmaker from the Piikani and Kainai Tribes of the Blackfoot Confederacy. At Battered Women’s Support Services (BWSS), we have had the change to work with him on a dating violence prevention video for our YOUth Ending Violence program.

This week, our Executive Director Angela Marie MacDougall joined Cowboy in his most recent radio broadcast project, ‪#‎TheSilentX to talk about February 14th Women’s Memorial March in Downtown Eastside, Vancouver and in numerous locations across the lands. We also spoke together about the work of BWSS in engaging young men and women to gain the skills to build a future free from violence, the role of men in ending violence, and campaigns like The Violence Stops Here.

Listen this conversation exploring the web of our work to end violence against women.


If you could do something to end violence against girls and women, wouldn’t you?
