A community free of relationship violence and abuse .
Victoria Women’s Transition House Society, working collaboratively, provides shelter, support, counselling and education to women of all ages, with or without children, so that they can live free from the effects of abuse in intimate relationships. The Society strives to prevent and eliminate abuse through education, advocacy and partnerships.
As a Society:
 We define “abuse” to include physical, sexual, emotional, psychological, verbal, and financial abuse.
 Violence and Abuse in intimate relationships must be understood in the context of broader societal issues of equality and empowerment of women.
 Within the limitations of the law.
 Feminism is a way of being, thinking and living in the world, where the aim is to achieve gender equality in every aspect of life such as social, political, economic, religious and cultural. (Definition adapted from: Feminist Issues, Fourth Edition.) See Appendix A for a more complete description of approaches to feminist perspectives for our Society.
