Open House December 6th, 2012

The Women’s Own Resource Centre is having an Open House in honour of

National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

on December 6th and invite you to stop by between 9:00am and 12:00pm for refreshments, inspiring stories and more information about local programs and ways to help. 

December 6th, we commemorate the lives of the 14 women killed in Montréal in 1989. On this day, we remember all women and girls who are murdered or experience violence by partners, family members and strangers throughout this country. On this day, we recommit to take action against all forms of violence against women and girls in our society.

It has been more than 20 years since these 14 young women were murdered in Montréal simply because they were women.
