Violence Against Women/Gender Based Violence


The Violence Against Women/Gender Based Violence Working Group's mandate is:

  • To provide expertise and analysis to PACBIC in order that it may advise the President and Provost on issues related to violence against women/gender-based violence.
  • To increase awareness at McMaster University about violence against women/gender-based violence and how different groups are impacted differentially as a result of social location, intersecting identities and/or a history of colonization.
  • To support the implementation of reports and recommendations related to violence against women/gender-based violence including the “It’s Time To End Violence Against Women on Campus” Project Recommendations (June, 2014) and the “McMaster Engineering Redsuits and Welcome Week Culture” Report (April 2014).
  • To support efforts by other campus groups including the Anti-Violence Network, the McMaster Student Union (MSU), MSU Women and Gender Equity Network (WGEN) and the Student Wellness Centre in developing and implementing violence awareness and prevention initiatives.
  • To respond to future incidents of violence against women/gender-based violence on campus.
  • To act as a centralized campus hub on violence against women/gender-based violence in order to identify emerging issues, encourage research efforts and share promising practices on issues related to violence against women/gender-based violence.
