Saturday December 6th is the National Day of Action and Remembrance on Violence Against Women
Women Won’t Forget invite you to attend our annual candlelight vigil on Saturday, December 6 at 6 pm at Philosopher’s Walk, University of Toronto (path off Bloor St. between the Royal Ontario Museum and the Royal Conservatory of Music). We gather to remember the fourteen women who were killed in Montreal as well as the women who have been killed since then because of male violence. The Vigil consists of a native healing ceremony, speakers and performers and ends with the laying of roses. Everyone is welcome. Ceremony proceeds regardless of the weather.

The aim of Women Won’t Forget is to heighten awareness of the continuing and pervasive extent of abuse against women in our society and to encourage and support efforts to end it. Since 1989, we have met to tell the stories of those women who can no longer speak for themselves. Our permanent memorial consists of 14 red oak trees, a granite boulder and a memorial plaque.
