National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women
This panel discussion has been designed to investigate the Montreal Massacre, 25 years after it happened. In recognition of the heart wrenching events that took place on December 6th 1989 at l’École Polytechnique de Montreal we are making space to discuss the implications of this event within a larger social climate.
What are the gender-based barriers faced by women in Canada and around the world? What aspects of gender-based violence often goes unseen? How does this day fit within our global setting? While much has changed, sadly, much has stayed the same. The purpose of this panel is to start a discussion on why the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women is still important, and also create an opportunity for critical discussion around this day and who and what might be missing from larger discourses around gender-based violence.
