Women's Inter-Church Council of Canada (WICC)
The Women's Inter-Church Council of Canada (WICC) is an ecumenical council of women from ten Christian denominations. Our vision, mission, and values are:
Restoring hope to women touched by injustice
Empowering Christians to pursue justice, peace, and reconciliation by standing together in prayer and action
Faith; Justice, Prayer, Solidarity, Respect
We will celebrate WICC's 100th anniversary in 2018. As part of those celebrations, we want to engage churches and Canadians of all traditions with issues of gendered violence. We are updating our print resource Healing Waters: Churches Working to End Violence Against Women and will offer it as an online resource. By actively supporting Thursdays In Black we want to raise awareness and encourage conversations about gendered violence in Canadian churches, schools, and workplaces.
