Our Beliefs

  • We believe that violence against women is an equality issue.
  • We believe that violence is used to control women and children.
  • We believe that people in positions of power create society’s standards and stereotypes. Individuals outside of these standards are often excluded.
  • We believe that violence against women is everywhere in society. We are all responsible for ending violence against women.
  • We believe that violence against women will end when all women have the right to self-determination (the freedom to live and act as one chooses).
  • We believe that we must continually work to reduce barriers to: education, housing, childcare, employment, healthcare and the legal system.
  • We believe that women’s response to violence and abuse should not be criminalized and or pathologized (to view or characterize as psychologically abnormal).
  • We believe that violence against women must be addressed with an understanding of racism and oppression.
  • We believe different experiences and additional barriers exist in shelters, communities and institutions for Indigenous women, racialized women and women from low socioeconomic backgrounds.
  • We believe that violence against women is a human rights violation and that perpetrators must be held accountable.
