On Saturday, October 8th, YWCA Greater Cincinnati will be partnering with soHza sister at their brick and mortar across the river on Mainstrasse in Covington, KY.
The event will center around YWCA Greater Cincinnati’s domestic violence work. For every purchase made in-store during those hours, 20% of that sale will go back to our domestic violence work in our community.
We are excited to see you there!
Week Without Violence is part of a global movement to end violence against women and girls with YWCAs across the country and around the world. At YWCA, we know that not all violence is acknowledged or responded to equally. That’s why, for more than 20 years, YWCA has set aside one week in October as a Week Without Violence. Join us from October 17 to 22. Together we can end gender-based violence.

She Screams Without Sound was established in 1988, when more than 20 Hamilton County women were killed by their intimate partners. Alarmed by the devastating number of victims, employees of Women Helping Women and the YWCA decided to do something to raise awareness in the community and in the Hamilton County court system.
A candlelight vigil memorial has been held every October since 1988 during Domestic Violence Awareness Month to honor the victims, both known and unknown. We celebrate the lives of those who have survived domestic violence, and we provide support and hope to children exposed to violence and loss.
