YWCA’s Week Without Violence aims to help women


TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) — The YWCA is hosting their Week Without Violence the week of October 16-20, 2017. Week Without Violence is part of a global movement to end violence against women and girls with YWCAs across the country and around the world.  The year of 2017 marks the organization’s 40th year in hopes of helping women in the community.

“Violence kills more women between the ages of 15 and 44 than cancer, malaria, traffic accidents and war combined,” Resource Development Director, Allison Marker said. “This is a way for us to rally together against violence in the ways that it can impact all kinds of people.”
