This is a Canadian Labour Congress campaign, but I couldn't find the right links on the CLC website, so I'm using the CAW site instead. [url=http://petition.web.net/caw/node/16]You can click on this link to send your postcard.[/url]
Day 8 (Funding Women's Shelters: Shelter and Support)
Last year more than 100,000 women and children used shelters and their front-line advocacy and support. Funding for shelters must be substantially increased.
Twenty years is too long.
Government attention to violence against women is long overdue. A law and order agenda is not the answer. Women need economic and social security to be safe at home, at work and in our communities. We need support for women's services and equality.
