Safety

Somebody Must Say These Things

22-03-2024 • 22 mins

Host, and Director of the Chrysalis Transition House Association, Ginger MacPhee is back in this episode; delving into the complex issue of safety, as it relates to the stark realities of gender-based violence survivors. We hear from survivors and experts who provide insight into the various forms of abuse, and the lasting impact it has on mental and emotional well-being. The fear of post-separation violence looms large, with half of all ex-partner homicides occurring within two months of leaving the relationship.

Despite efforts to provide safety, challenges persist, particularly in rural areas where resources are limited. In this episode we highlight the vulnerabilities faced by shelters, underscoring the need for adequate funding and support. However, amidst the adversity, there is hope.

This podcast was made possible by the Transition House Association of Nova Scotia. THANS exists to eliminate violence against women in Nova Scotia. Their organizations provide a full range of support services to women and their children in a safe, supportive environment and provide survivors of violence with opportunities to learn about available resources, and alternatives to facilitate informed personal choices and decisions.


THANS is not 100% government funded by the provincial or federal government. This needs to change. Go to thans.ca to learn how you can help.


This podcast is narrated by Ginger MacPhee, Executive Director at Chrysalis House Association.
