from OAITH:

As we release our Annual Femicide List today highlighting 52 femicides in 52 weeks we are urging all Ontarians, Elected Officials and those working in systems and services to do their part by prioritizing the safety of survivors so that they don’t end up on our femicide list.  Ultimately, these rates reflect larger systemic issues and conditions that have led to tragic outcomes.  Left unaddressed we will continue on a trajectory that doesn’t prioritize or value the safety concerns for survivors of gender-based violence. Femicide prevention is a non-partisan issue which must be the priority of every leader and all levels of government across our province.” 

– Marlene Ham, Executive Director, Ontario Association of Interval & Transition Houses
