Commit to #KNOWMORE
by Battered Women's Support Services, 2017

Each year in BC, more than 30,000 women and children affected by domestic violence are referred to violence against women counselling and outreach programs.

In addition, more than 18,000 women and children access transition houses and safe houses to escape violence or abuse. As well, an average of 2326 women were admitted to a BC hospital for severe injuries sustained by a male partner.

In years 2014 and 2015, there was an increase in women killed by their male partners in BC.

For every woman who is killed there are thousands more living with serious and severe levels of violence.
This International Women’s Day Commit to #kNOwmore

Women are more likely to tell a trusted friend, family member or co-worker about the abuse than call police.
Commit to #KNOWMORE

After studying decades of domestic violence deaths, Battered Women’s Support Services has found that the vast majority of women who died were not connected to a community advocate. We want the BC and Federal governments to invest more in community-based support services.
