Violence Against Women




December 6th has unfortunately become an historical day in Canadian history. It is a day people interested in justice, peace and humanity will never forget. Although we must remember and honour those who died, remembering is not enough. We must also educate to promote change.

Contained on this site are some very powerful articles about violence against women. Each article reminds us that the events that took place in Montreal in 1989 were not unique. Violence against women is far too common, and those who make the headlines are not the only perpetrators.
