War on Women, vol 3,

On any given day in Canada, more than 3,000 women (along with their 2,500 children) are living in an emergency shelter. And half of all women in Canada have experienced at least one incident of physical or sexual violence since the age of 16.  

Shelter from the Storm, a movement across Canada to end violence against women is challenging everyone to help these women and their children and overcome the greatest challenge of their lives and build a brighter future for our sisters, mothers, daughters, and friends.To this end, an event has been organized.....
