For our 2nd collection launched on June 22nd, we are extremely proud to have joined forces with Le Regroupement des Maisons pour Femmes Victimes de Violence Conjugale in order to tackle a plague that is unfortunately and sadly still too present in our society, namely domestic violence against women and children.
With 43 houses located across Quebec, Le Regroupement des Maisons pour Femmes Victimes de Violence Conjugale constitutes a vast network committed, since 1979, to the right to physical and psychological integrity of women. Last year alone, the group welcomed more than 5,000 women and children, not counting the 17,000 who received services other than accommodation (outpatient consultations, procedural support, post-treatment follow-up, accommodation, etc.).
In Quebec alone and on an annual basis, police services record more than 20,000 offenses committed in a conjugal context, which represents 30% of all crimes committed against the person ... of which 78% of the victims are women.
