In solidarity with all survivors of sexual assault and violence, Unifor 567 is making a donation of $200 to Harmony House, the only second-stage women’s shelter in Ottawa.
While much of the media is understandably focused on the current high-profile case, the upsetting reality is that misogynist violence, occurring in a myriad of forms, is systemic and present all around us, everyday. The fact that 1 in 4 women in North America will be sexually assaulted during their lifetime is deeply upsetting, and unacceptable.
We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the courage of feminists and survivors, both historically and in the present moment, who continue to resist the many forms that misogynist violence takes in our communities and workplaces.
In solidarity and struggle,
