December 6 is National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women


Today, December 6, marks the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women in Canada. On this day, we remember the lives of all women-identifying victims and survivors who have faces or continue to face violence and discrimination based on their gender identity or expression. You can learn more about the National Action Plan to End Gender-Based Violence here.



You can learn more about how you can take action and honour the victims of this tragedy here. Here are more ways you can take action, not just today, but everyday, to end Gender-Based Violence in the community.



At Watching Over Women (WOW) Toronto, we are committed to creating a safe and supportive space for women who have survived rape, sexual violence, sexual harassment, or any form of gender-based violence.

We believe that every woman deserves respect, dignity, and empowerment to heal and thrive.

That’s why today, we are launching The Survivor’s Empowerment Journey Resource Guide; a labor of love and care put together by the team of volunteers at WOW Toronto, to provide support, information, and empowerment to survivors and victims.

This resource guide consists of helpful information, exercises, journal prompts, and affirmations to aid in the healing and empowerment journey of survivors. Sign up for our newsletter to receive a copy of WOW Toronto’s Survivor’s Empowerment Journey Resource Guide. We hope you find the resource guide helpful and inspiring.

Remember, you are a valuable and unique person, and you have the power to heal and thrive. We are here to support your and cheer you on.
