Elizabeth Fry Toronto, Barbra Schlifer Legal Clinic, and the Woman Abuse Council Toronto: The Blue Prints Project Collaborative Developmental Evaluation and Gender Based Analysis on Safety for Newcomer Women
Eko Nomos worked as the developmental evaluation consultant with a collaborative of the Woman’s Abuse Council of Toronto, the Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic and Elizabeth Fry Toronto on a two year project funded by Status of Women Canada to undertake a gender-based analysis of the impact of policy and systems on women’s safety and to develop recommendations and actions to promote the integration of gender considerations into decision making processes on the issue of woman’s safety. Although the project was focused on the experiences of women living in Toronto it sought to leverage and build upon the work already initiated by the violence against women sector more broadly. This project resulted in a web based tool that mapped policy intersections that created unsafe conditions for newcomer women.
