Rural Girls Take Action

Introduction

Resisting Violence: Rural Women and Girls Take Action is a project that will involve young women in rural, northern Nova Scotia taking leadership to raise awareness about, and engage their communities in taking steps to end, violence against women and girls.

Youth involved in the project will work together to create community action plans to identify and address the multiple forms of violence experienced by young women and girls, such as physical abuse, dating violence, sexual assault and harassment, peer exclusion and bullying, racism, homophobia, transphobia, self-harm, and cyber-violence.

Participants will be encouraged to use their gifts and creative talents to inspire their friends, families and communities to imagine and work toward a world where women and girls are free of violence!

Resisting Violence is a 27- month project funded by Status of Women Canada that was launched on January 31, 2011 and was completed in 2013.

As a part of this project a series of videos were created  by each community involved. Please take the time to watch:
