Women Only Space

It is under male oppression that women recognize the need to gather and organize to create rape crisis centres, transition houses and women centres — women only spaces. Consciousness raising gave us our collective voice. Grouping with women who share the same life experience in women-only space is still our most valuable tool to redefine, validate and guide our struggle for our own liberation.

We are encouraged by those who spoke on the day in favour of our work and the political principles guiding us. As well, by the hundreds who expressed similar sentiments in their letters to council members. We are also grateful to the many who have donated to us, ensuring that we can carry on and even expand our public education efforts.

In a woman-only space, with other women, who have the shared experience of being born without a choice to the oppressed class of women we come together to organize and strategize our resistance and our fight for women’s liberation.
