In this time of increasing violence, we hear the calls to honour those whose lives have been stolen, while at the same time making explicit the reasons for these forms of violence.

On this annual National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, we recognize the need for continued action to end ongoing violence against women in Canada and around the world.

For those interested in learning more, the Library at Emily Carr University maintains and regularly updates a research guide bringing together artistic, scholarly
and activist material that is related to violence against women. The guide includes information on the Montreal Massacre itself, local resources and links to sites of activism.
