Communities free of intimate partner violence and abuse .
Victoria Women’s Transition House Society collaborates, advocates and educates to address and prevent intimate partner violence and abuse of women and children through supportive shelter, housing, counselling and other community-based services.
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.
