The Women’s Crisis Center is rooted in the resurgence of the women’s movement in the 80s. Active organizing of women encouraged the discussion of women’s experiences of all forms of violence which otherwise would have remained private and unrecognized.
From there a group deeply concerned with the violence that pervades women’s lives committed themselves to respond to the issue. On February 19, 1989 the Women’s Crisis Center was formally established. It is the first and only crisis center in the Philippines which offers a comprehensive range of crisis intervention services for survivors of violence.
A society that is prosperous, just, humane and liberating, where women have self-determination, equal rights and opportunities in all spheres of life regardless of gender, sexual preference, class, ethnicity and race.
The Women’s Crisis Center is committed to work with passion and creativity towards the elimination of all forms of violence against women and help enable women to be active participants in social transformation.
Establishment of holistic feminist services for victims/survivors of all forms of violence against women.
Elimination of all forms of violence against women through the formation of women’s communities, supporting initiatives and encouraging partnerships.
