National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

On this National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, let’s take a moment to reflect on the significance of the day and the collective responsibility we share in addressing gender-based violence.

December 6th is a day of solemn remembrance, marking the anniversary of the École Polytechnique massacre in 1989, where 14 young women lost their lives simply because of their gender. It serves as a poignant reminder of the ongoing challenges faced by women and girls, as well as the need for sustained efforts to create a society free from violence and discrimination.

This year, let us honor the memory of the lives lost and raise awareness about the widespread issue of gender-based violence. In doing so, we not only pay tribute to those affected but also commit ourselves to fostering a culture of respect, equality, and empowerment.

Let us stand united against gender-based violence, working together to build a future where everyone can live free from fear and discrimination.

In solidarity,
