Spirit of Woman

Logo for Spirit of Woman

Spirit of Woman is a not-for-profit organisation, seeking to change the discourse on domestic & family violence by creating The Place of Courage – Ripples across South Australia.

We are shifting domestic and family violence (DFV) from behind closed doors into the public domain, where it can be openly acknowledged, shared, and discussed. By changing the discourse on DFV, we can help break the intergenerational cycle. We see our enduring role as connecting, uniting, and helping South Australian agencies, not-for-profit organisations, and businesses to utilise the space in a variety of ways. This may include referring the site to clients as well as promoting and supporting community education programs to reduce domestic and family violence.
