Domestic Abuse: What every woman should know

Wednesday January 14th, 2009, 4:30-5:30 pm, 5115HP (Herzberg Laboratories) Carleton University.

Presented by: Bailey Reid, Program Coordinator of Neighbours, Friends and Families Campaign.

"A woman is in 9 times more danger in her home than on the streets"

"1 out of 4 women will experience domestic abuse in their lifetime", "70% of domestic abuse is non-physical"

The Neighbours, Friends and Families Campaign has offered to do a presentation for CU-WISE about domestic abuse toward women. The goal of their presentation is to provide awareness about how to recognize a woman who is abused (whether physically, verbally, or emotionally), how to approach her in a discussion, and how to get her to safety. The presentation includes a documentary.

Light refreshments will be served. Free admission.
