December 6 is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women, a day inspired by the lives of the 14 young women at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal who were murdered because of their gender. Every year on this day, we reaffirm our commitment to fighting against all forms of violence against women.

This day is an opportunity to reflect on violence against women in our society and to remember those who have died as a result of gender-based violence.
