Week Without Violence

Each year during the third week of October, Canadians bond with people in over 90 countries around the world to mark YWCA’s Week Without Violence™​.

In 2017, YWCA Metro Vancouver shone a light on what's being done when it comes to sexual assault in Canada and how we can continue to improve the systematic and media response to women who have experienced abuse.

You can help us end everyday violence against women and girls. Follow along on our blog or join the conversation on Facebook or Twitter and help us share facts about sexual violence in Canada.
