National Violence Against Women Day

by | Dec 7, 2016 | Blog | 0 comments

On December 6, 1989, 14 young women from the Engineering Faculty at the Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal were brutally murdered. They were killed precisely because they were women: women who had dared to step through the barriers to equality in what many still considered to be a field of study that rightly belonged to men only.

Yesterday we had a ceremony for all the women we have lost through violence, which included some of our women in our community. We started our day of remembrance with a smudging ceremony by some of our local residence, followed by some drumming done by our local indigenous group called ALL NATIONS . It was a lovely ceremony as we read aloud the women’s names that were lost in Polytechnique and then we heard testimonies from our local women from our community. Our ceremony was followed by a light lunch that was provided by our amazing volunteers who made the sandwiches that was handed out.
