Our Mission


‘The Hawaii County Committee on the Status of Women (CSW), working with the Hawaii State Commission on Status of Women (HSCSW), promotes equality for women and girls in the County by acting as a catalyst for positive change through advocacy, education, collaboration and program development.’  

No Shame – Ask for help if you


• Cry a lot

• Are upset a lot

• Apologize a lot

• Get scared

 

Or your partner:


•   Calls you terrible names

•   Makes threats

•   Tries to keep you away from friends or family

•   Uses drugs or alcohol a lot

•   Tries to control you

 

  Remember!


•   It is your right to feel safe and comfortable in your relationship

•   To explain and discuss this to your partner

•   You are the one to decide the kind of relationship you want.

•   You have the right not to be touched without your permission.

•   If you cannot establish an acceptable relationship, it might be best to walk away
