Roll out the red carpet, because this is your glimpse into Surrey Women's Centre at Hollywood North for National Victims of Crime Awareness Week 2015.
As a support worker, I’ve sat across from myself many times at the hospital. I remember my own story, and how I’ve helped other women share theirs.
My job as a Fund Developer for Surrey Women's Centre is to open the conversation around violence against women. I find myself talking nonstop about it to my friends and family. They may start off with surprise and disbelief, along with the familiar string of questions, but after a while, an interesting phenomena happens: they start opening up to me about gendered issues that they face in their everyday lives.
