Synopsis

The first history of the battered women's shelter movement in

Canada, No Place to Go traces the development of transition

houses and services for abused women and the campaign that made wife

battering a political issue. Nancy Janovicek focuses on women's

groups in small cities and rural communities, examining anti-violence

activism in Thunder Bay, Kenora, Nelson, and Moncton. She also pays

close attention to Aboriginal women in northwestern Ontario, where the

connections between family violence and the devaluation of indigenous

culture in Canadian society complicated effots to end domestic

violence. This book lays bare the aims and challenges of establishing

women's shelters in non-urban areas. The local histories

presented here show how transition houses became hubs in a larger

movement to change attitudes about domestic violence and to lobby for

legislation to protect women.

Nancy Janovicek is Assistant Professor in the Department of History at the University of Calgary.
