The Ontario Association of Interval & Transition Houses' (OAITH) Purple Scarf Campaign runs for the month of November. The purple scarf is a symbol of the courage it takes a woman to leave her abuser. The courage of a woman alone is not enough...it takes the strength and support of an entire community to end violence against women.
Purple scarves can be purchased from MINE101 (a social enterprise which is owned and operated by Women's Community House).
