Purpose: This 36-month project will prevent and reduce violence against women and girls in Metro Vancouver. A needs assessment will be conducted to identify the impacts of hyper-sexualisation of girls and hyper-masculinisation of boys and how it contributes to violence against women and girls. Community leaders will be engaged to develop and pilot an engagement strategy based on the recommendations of the assessment. Opportunities for policy change will be identified and presented to partner organizations and government.
