Action on gender-based violence still needed

HALIFAX-- NDP Status of Women spokesperson Suzy Hansen made the following statement on the National Day for Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women:

“As we mark another National Day for Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, we are reminded of the ongoing issue of gender-based violence that affects too many Nova Scotians.
Many Nova Scotia organizations continue the important work on the frontlines to prevent and respond to gender-based violence in communities across our province. And, Nova Scotia New Democrats continue to call on the government to support these essential services through sustainable long-term funding.
Violence against women and gender diverse people will continue in our province until gender inequality is addressed.”

Anyone experiencing domestic abuse or looking for information can contact the Transition House Association of Nova Scotia’s toll-free, 24/7 line at 1-855-225-0220.
