Half of all women in Canada have experienced at least one incident of physical or sexual violence since the age of 16.
67% of Canadians say they have personally known at least one woman who has experienced physical or sexual abuse.
Approximately every six days, a woman in Canada is killed by her intimate partner.
On any given night in Canada, 3,491 women and their 2,724 children sleep in shelters because it isn’t safe at home.
There were 1,181 cases of missing or murdered Aboriginal women in Canada between 1980 and 2012, according to the RCMP. However, according to grassroots organizations and the Minister of the Status of Women the number is much higher, closer to 4,000.
Aboriginal women are killed at six times the rate of non-aboriginal women.
I would like to work hard to change any of these horrific statistics. I am dedicated to donating 5% from the income of my branding projects to the shelter in my neighbourhood. These women and children are my friends and neighbours, and I want to work towards making them feel safe, welcome and loved, and as much as possible lessen the disruption they are feeling as they flee from dangerous and potentially life-threatening situations, often with their children.
