About The She Is Your Neighbour Podcast:

She Is Your Neighbour is an awareness project and storytelling series created by Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region. The project explores the realities and complexities of domestic violence by sharing stories from people of all walks of life.
Through the podcast and prevention series, the intersectionality of domestic violence is highlighted. The podcast’s goal is to increase awareness, build understanding, and shift public perception so domestic violence is viewed as a societal problem that everyone has a role in ending.
The shame and stigma surrounding domestic violence can make it difficult to talk about, but this won’t change unless we have difficult conversations.
The reality is domestic violence is happening; it impacts people in all neighbourhoods and we all have a role a play in ending domestic violence.
