Pervasive and widespread, woman abuse and sexual violence harm
women of all ages, sexual orientations, racial and ethnic backgrounds,
socio-economic classes and religions.
The Woman Abuse Working group and the Social Planning and Research Council of Hamilton have created an asset map of the Violence Against Women (VAW) services in Hamilton and Area.
The Woman Abuse Working Group of Hamilton (WAWG) would like to acknowledge all of the organizations and community members who support WAWG’s action toward ending violence against women in Hamilton. Special thanks to those organizations that opened their doors, offered their expertise and connected the SPRC research team to community members and staff to participate in surveys, focus groups and key informant interviews.
WAWG gratefully acknowledges the funding provided by the Ministry of Community and Social Services which made this initiative possible.
