VANCOUVER, BC – Last night (August 5, 2021), women held a putting-up-posters action around the Provincial Court in Downtown Vancouver.

The women are Vancouver Rape Relief’s callers – battered and raped womenwho reported to police but their attackers were not charged. They are angry with the refusal of the Criminal (in)Justice System to hold the men who attacked them accountable. They demand justice for themselves and for all women victims of male violence.

For more information or comments from a front line worker, please contact: Hilla Kerner at 604-872-8212, or hillak[at]rapereliefshelter.bc.ca

Please note, the callers are not available for comment.
