The New Family Law Act and its Implication for Battered Women by Annie Zhang
We recognized that there are already many excellent informational resources about the FLA that provide plain-language overviews of the changes in our legislation. As such, this guide is not intended to replace the wonderful work already completed by legal professionals, or to provide a comprehensive summary of legislative changes. Rather, this guide intends to focus specifically on sections of the FLA that we believe will have the most significant impact on our work at Battered Women’s Support Services, where we provide legal information, support and advocacy with an anti-oppressive analysis and understanding of the unique issues, concerns, and barriers experienced by battered women in the legal system.

We had the chance to ask this inspiring artist a bit about herself and hear a little of her story:
Atira Women's Resource Society is a not-for-profit organization committed to the work of ending violence against women through providing direct service, as well as working to increase awareness of and education around the scope and impact on our communities of men's violence against women and children.
Atira is accessible to anyone who identifies and lives full time as a woman and who experiences gendered violence and misogyny, including trans, two spirit and intersex women and or those who identify with a femme of centre non-binary gender. Atira recognizes the barriers and stigmatization faced by women who do not fit into society’s gender-binary system and the violence, poverty and discrimination they encounter as a result.
We can’t stop sexual violence if we don’t all speak up and say something. Help to dispel the myths. #SaySomethingBC
