Violence

Hi, my name is Julia. I'm 15 and in grade 10. For a class of mine I am doing a project on battered women. In the last few weeks I have learned a lot. I feel sorry for battered women and I want to help. What can I do to help? If it wouldn't be a problem, could you send me the number of a shelter in Guelph, Ontario? If not I will understand. But could you please send me some information on battered women? Thanks, Julia

Dear Julia--Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM and for your efforts to help battered women. There are two possible ways to find a shelter in your town -- either look up "shelters" in your yellow pages and see what you can come up with, or contact the Family Violence Prevention Fund. They are a U.S. based national organization with an 800 number that can link you to shelters in most communities in the United States. Although their work is U.S. focused, I would think that they could either put you in touch with an equivalent organization in Canada or directly with a shelter in your area.

If none of the above works out, please let me know and I will send other suggestions. Good luck with your project and your work.
