National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

Thank you to those who joined us for the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women as we commemorated the women who lost their lives in the Montreal Massacre on December 6, 1989 and all the women and children who have died as a result of gendered violence.

“The date is etched in history by the shooting deaths of 14 women in 1989 in Montreal by a man deliberately targeting women on a busy campus.  Canadians reacted with shock, sorrow and outrage.  A strong lobby formed to bring guns under control in Canada, work that continues to this day.  December 6 became the day we remember the women who died and re-commit to taking action on violence against women and girls until our streets, our campuses and our homes are safe. Because Canada is not yet a safe country for women.” (YWCA, Canada)
