The New Jersey Coalition for Battered Women
MISSION STATEMENT

 
 

NJCBW Logo


Vision

To end oppression and violence in the lives of women.

 

Our Mission

New Jersey Coalition for Battered Women is a statewide association that provides leadership, support and resources on the prevention of violence against women in New Jersey through advocacy, training, public awareness and research.

 

Philosophy


Violence against women in any form is a fundamental element of the oppression of women. NJCBW recognizes that in order to advance its mission it must address the historical and continuing cause of this oppression - patriarchy. Patriarchy ideology perpetuates the principles of domination, destruction, authority and competition while stifling the principles of negotiation, growth, equality and cooperation. NJCBW pursues its mission with a feminist awareness of the patriarchal origins of domestic violence challenging those societal beliefs that inhibit the empowerment and self-determination of women.
