The YWCA-Yellowknife received funding from the Status of Women Canada to conduct a two year project examining the needs of NWT women who have experienced sexual assault and the NWT services that respond to these needs. The project has met with service providers to plan for ways to better support women in the future.
The project conducted confidential interviews with ten women from ve NWT communities. It took courage for these women to share their stories - for some of them it was the first time they had spoken to anyone about the sexual violence they had endured. Read the report below.
