Battered Women's Support Services

Assessing the intersections of race and gender in police response to Black, Indigenous, and women of colour experiencing gender-based violence in BC.

The WHO identifies the following effects of GBV on women: death, disability, HIV, depression, and PTSD. Although the police and legal systems are mandated to support GBV victims, there is evidence that battered Black, Indigenous and women of colour (BIWOC) receive harmful responses from the police. This research enables action through a reflective cycle, where community members and services collect and analyze data together to assess police protection of BIWOC victims of gender-based violence.
