Silent Witness Nova Scotia gives a voice to women who have had their voices silenced by domestic homicide. SWNS honours thesewomen in several ways, including the Barb's Bench Project. Purple benches are placed in public parks with a telephone number for women to call if they are victims of domestic violence. The SWNS Walk to Remember is happening virtually throughout October.

Domestic violence can impact people from all backgrounds and walks of life. @AWHL supports women experiencing violence with services in 200+ languages, as well as deaf, deafblind and hard of hearing services.

This #InternationalDayOfTheGirl we’re celebrating young women like Rae Steeves, Anne-Sophie Bartenstein and Kate James who recently won a grant from Rising Youth Canada to write a book about intersectional feminism called The Woman’s Issue.

Today we are proud to launch, "Somebody Must Say These Things", an eight-part podcast series that casts a stark, unapologetic light on our society’s continued insufficient acknowledgement of violence against women. You can listen by searching the title on any podcast app.
