Join WCH on Dec. 6 – National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

December 4, 2017

National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

This year marks the 28th anniversary of what has come to be known as the Montreal Massacre.

On Dec. 6, 1989, a man entered L’École Polytechnique in Montreal, separated the men from the women and shot and killed 14 women while making anti-woman statements.

On the anniversary of this tragic day, Women’s College Hospital will reflect on violence against women and remember the women who have tragically lost their lives to gender-based violence.

Please join us in our commemoration:

Wednesday, December 6
12 – 1 p.m.
Women’s College Hospital Auditorium – 2nd Floor

A keynote address Unfounded will be presented by Robyn Doolittle, an investigative reporter for The Globe and Mail. In her Unfounded series, she explored how sexual assault allegations are handled across Canada and how the response is not always proportional to the severity of the crime.

All are welcome.
