Despite decades of research, education, lobbying and activism, violence against women and girls continues to be widely tolerated in Canada.  In recent years, Canada has seen dramatic cuts in funding to organizations that support victims of violence or who advocate for better policies and protections on their behalf.  We have seen little commitment or effort by governments to eradicate violence against women.

As part of the ongoing struggle to end violence against women, Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women is announcing the launch of its latest publication – a comprehensive, accessible, free fact sheet on violence against women in Canada. The fact sheet is a compilation of the most recent research and statistics on women’s experience of violence, the forms it takes and the varied impact on women.  

Both the long and short versions are attached. The Fact Sheet is also available on their website:
