Ending Violence Against Women
Violence against women is still happening. Every six days, a woman living in Canada loses her life to domestic violence. Staggeringly, half of all women in Canada have experienced at least one instance of sexual violence in their adult lifetime.
Due to domestic violence, on any given night in Canada, almost 3,500 women and their dependent children sleep in shelters because they don’t feel safe at home. What’s worse is around 300 women are turned away each night because of a lack of room in these shelters.
The problem of domestic abuse is also prevalent in the US as well. Each year in the United States, millions of women endure physical, emotional and psychological abuse. Almost 20 people per minute are physically abused by their partner – that’s 10 million people each year.
1 in 4 women in the US has been the victim of severe physical violence by their partner in their lifetime. And almost 50% of all women in the United States have experienced psychological aggression by the person that is supposed to love them unconditionally.
Millions of women need our help and support to get out of abusive relationships and find the support they need to break free from the physical, emotional and psychological trauma they are drowning in.
But it’s not as easy as simply walking away from an abusive relationship. Many women have
dependent children to think about and can’t support themselves financially. Not to mention, many don’t have a support network they feel they can turn to in times of crisis.
That’s why organizations like Halton Women’s Place are so important. They are a safe place for
victims of domestic abuse to go to find the support they need.
Who Are Halton Women’s Place?
This life-changing organization is a non-profit that provides shelter, support and vital services for women suffering from physical, emotional and sexual abuse. They offer a place for women and their dependent children to turn to when they have nowhere else to go.
Their important services include a 24-hour hotline run by Crisis Intervention Counsellors who
provide support and advice for those who need it. They also provide community-based services to help women and their young children stay involved in their local communities. And finally, they offer safe, secure shelter for women and their children experiencing abuse.
This wonderful organization helps women break free of violence and establish new, abuse-free lives in their community. They are dedicated to ending violence against women and their young children. And at Femme Bar, we believe in the outstanding work they do.
This amazing organization has been operating for over forty years and has helped hundreds of
women and their families rebuild their lives.
The Femme Bar Selfie Fundraiser
At Femme Bar, our core values are honesty, care, and respect. We uphold these values in everything we do and every service we offer but we strongly believe actions speak louder than words. How could we say we have these values without helping women who need our care the most? Just as we care for and respect each of our valued clients, we want to extend that to reach out to others in our community.
That’s why we’ve decided to fundraise for Halton Women’s Place. We’ve partnered up with this organization to help them reach their goal of ending violence and abuse against women. All the money we raise during our fundraiser will go directly to the charity to make sure they can carry on with the vital work they do in the community.
And to help you get involved, we’ve made sure this fundraiser is fun and simple to take part in! If you want to get involved and help a worthy cause, all you need to do is come and visit us in the salon. Once you’ve had your treatment, we’ll ask you to take a selfie with our new fundraiser selfie board.
Our aim is to reach 500 selfies in the month of March and we hope you’ll share your selfie on social media to help get others involved.
Once you’ve taken your selfie, we’ll donate $5 on your behalf to Halton Women’s Place. And as a thank you for taking part in our fundraiser, you’ll also receive a $5 gift card to use on your next visit with us.
Together we really can make a difference in women’s lives.
