Advocacy


YWCA Hamilton has a long tradition of advocacy in Hamilton and has been a strong voice, advocating for the improved status of women locally and through our affiliation with YWCA Canada and the World YWCA. YWCA Hamilton knows that a holistic approach is needed in order to achieve women’s equality. We advance social change daily through our programs, services and supports and advocacy.

We tackle social issues related to women and girls:

  • Ending violence against women

  • Women’s economic independence
  • Women’s entrepreneurial opportunities
  • Women’s health and wellness
  • Women’s equity rights
  • Supporting girls development
  • Women’s leadership
  • International linkages in the YWCA movement
