Ongoing Activities of WISE
WISE has developed a 1-hour workshop to engage boys around the ages of 8-12 in discussions about masculinity, gender norms, their relation to violence against women (VAW).
We had a successful Take Back the Night (TBTN) event this year on September 22, 2016.
WISE is presenting a legal education program – emphasizing the notion that equality is not only gained through legal action, but through knowledge of the law and equality rights. The ultimate goal is to empower women to take control of their own safety and well-being as women are statistically more vulnerable to violence, harassment/stalking and sexual assault than men (Canadian Network of Women’s Shelters and Transition Houses, 2013).
