About National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women

In 1991, the Government of Canada declared Dec.6 the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. Fourteen women were gunned down at L’Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal in an act of misogynistic violence. This day is a time for Canadians to reflect on the fact that women around the world face disproportionate levels of violence every day.
