December 6th: National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

Today as we commemorate the 28th Anninversary of the Ecole Polytechnique Massacre in Montreal in 1989 let us all remember that many women and  girls continue to suffer violence, even torture and death in Canada and throughout the world just because they are female. As we reflect on this history, let us continue our efforts in helping those who are affected by this violence. Our 8400 CFUW members in over 100 Clubs across Canada join with other concerned citizens, female and male, in recognizing this horror and in searching for preventive ways to eradicate this violence from the lives of women and children.

Sharing is caring!
