Donate to Alternatives for Women
Historically, women and children have experienced systematic and institutionalized inequality in our society. We recognize that women and children are disadvantaged by our patriarchal society and because of this, are frequently victimized through violence. We recognize that violence against women and children is both an expression of their disadvantage and a coercive tool used to ensure it's perpetuation. Alternatives for Women, as part of a comprehensive network of services for women and children who have been victimized by violence, provide advocacy, education, and non-judgmental supportive counselling within a feminist perspective.
