New Years’ Resolution: End Violence Against Women

We all start a new year hoping, planning, and thinking of ways to better ourselves and the world around us. Whether your goal is to exercise more, pick up a new hobby, or stay in better touch with friends and family, there’s no New Year resolution too small to make a difference. But if you’re looking to make a change in the lives of others, how about resolving to take action in ending violence against women? Think about how you can incorporate these goals into your year, to help us work towards ending abuse and violence:

New Year's Reflection

The end of the year calls for reflection. It's a time to celebrate and revisit the successes and trials of the year past and share those moments with those around us.

2014 marked Interval House’s 41st year helping women reshape their lives in face of violence and abuse. A year fraught with gender-based violence in the media, 2014 also stirred conversation and quashed some taboos, allowing the issue of abuse to enter the public mindset. At Interval House, we are always striving to encourage not only conversation, but also empowerment, and 2014 was no exception.
