Workout for Women's Day

Workout for Women’s Day

Workout for Women’s Day is a coming together of local movement studios and instructors around International Women's Day to offer classes for charities that support girls, women, and other people who experience gender discrimination.

This year marks the fifth year of this campaign that has raised more than $100,000 for women-supporting charities! We are excited to announce that Women's Shelters Canada (WSC) has been chosen as one of the four recipient charities for Workout for Women's Day 2023!

When you work out this Women’s Day, the funds raised will go directly to the Tech Safety Canada Project that WSC is working on in collaboration with the BC Society of Transition Houses (BCSTH).

WSC was created because the provincial and territorial shelter associations worked together to create a national body. BCSTH is one of these associations and is both a member of WSC and on our board. They are a member-based, provincial organization that enhances the continuum of services and strategies to respond to, prevent, and end violence against women, children, and youth in BC.

The goal of this fundraising is to create a series of ‘how-to’ video resources to accompany the tech safety toolkits. These videos would be a great addition because they offer people another format/way to engage with and take in content, they are very accessible, easily shareable, etc. They can also be used as training resources both during the trainings we will be running and if shelters wanted to use them in staff training or with survivors. With your support, we could contribute to make a number of 'how-to' videos, co-brand them, and ensure they’re bilingual, allowing for both WSC and BCSTH to use everything produced and share nationwide.
