On the frontlines
Angela Marie MacDougall is the Executive Director of Battered Women’s Support Services.
Battered Women’s Support Services provides education, advocacy, and support services to assist all victims and survivors in our aim to work towards the elimination of gender-based violence and to work from a feminist perspective that promotes gender equity.
Battered Women’s Support Services is a front-line first responder for victims and survivors of gender-based violence, intimate partner violence, and domestic violence.
An intersectional feminist voice against violence and oppression, BWSS is a strong, dynamic organization that provides support and advocacy for women who have experienced abuse, as well as community education and training about gender-based violence.
Part of a global feminist anti-violence movement, BWSS’ long-term goal is the elimination of all violence against women and girls.
“The BWSS team is unparalleled in their determination, it’s an honour to convene with them.”
“Every day I marvel at the incredible team at BWSS (Battered Women’s Support Services), savvy, smart and with plenty sass and style. And if alliteration wasn’t enough, they bring an unparalleled fierceness and determination with laughter and humour…happy warriors getting it done.”
