As part of the Young Women’s National Leadership Summit, the YWCA and the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) invited participants aged 17+ from across North America to take part in a conversation with three outstanding role models and leaders in the fight for women’s rights.

The War at Home

Across Canada, a woman is killed every six days by her intimate partner. Another 3,000 flee their homes each night, seeking refuge in shelters. This must-see documentary offers an intimate look at a private battlefield, one where thousands of Canadian women live in fear in the one place they should feel safe – their homes. Warning: this program may contain mature subject matter and coarse language. Viewer discretion is advised. (2016 | 44 min)
