A purple scarf is a symbol of the strength it takes a woman to leave her abuser...

Show your support... buy your 2019 #WrappedinCourage campaign scarf!
Optimism Place Women’s Shelter and Support Services is will be mobilizing our community to ensure everyone is educated, aware, and willing to help put an end to men’s violence against women. Now in its 7th year, OAITH’s Wrapped in Courage Campaign invites all Ontarians to show their support by purchasing a purple scarf from their local Women’s Shelter. The courage of a woman alone is not enough.
“Whether it’s a friend, loved one, co worker or neighbour, we all know women who’ve suffered from men’s use of violence, harassment or control. Sadly for women and children these men are closely known to them. When we all know someone who has either survived or lost their life to gender-based violence, let that be the wake up call to do your part and be a part of the solution”
Marlene Ham, Executive Director, OAITH
