Today marks the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day. So ladies, stand up and be proud! Today to commemorate the anniversary of International Women’s Day the Assaulted Women’s Helpline launched their campaign called “Who Would You Call?” . This campaign is to simply celebrate and pay tribute to the important friends and family in your life that we can call no matter what time of day it is. There are about 49,000+ women living in Ontario that aren’t so fortunate and have the helpline to listen 24/7. With this, the Assaulted Women’s Helpline is inviting people to write a story (or letter, or blog post, or poem or film a video or whatever else you can think of) to honor your amazing friend (s).
Today is the launch of the website and the campaign will continue until April 15th.
The Assaulted Women’s Helpline is a toll free crisis line service for all women in Ontario. We provide crisis counselling, emotional support, information and referrals 24 hours a day and seven days a week. The main goal is to get people talking and thinking – by celebrating your uber-fantastic friends and recognizing that we’re pretty lucky to have friends like that to celebrate – not everyone is in the same boat and that’s why the Helpline exists.
