  • VIDEO Victims of Montreal Massacre & Gender Violence Remembered with New Resolve

    A candlelight vigil remembering the 1989 Montreal Massacre and recognizing the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women brought together dozens of men and women last night. The event, held at Memorial University’s Engineering building, highlighted the importance of the recent #Metoo movement.

    Fourteen women were brutally gunned down and killed at L’École Polytechnique University twenty eight years ago.

    VP Academic at Memorial, Noreen Golfman hosted the solemn event and she took time to praise the courage of the many women who have joined the #Metoo movement. She says it shines a light on the history of harassment abuse and violence against women.

    Golfman believes talking about an experience is part of the change needed to address the prevalence of gender based violence.

    Golfman says she hopes women are gaining strength through things like the #Metoo movement so they may confront abuse. She says progress is hard won but she is starting to see that society might be getting somewhere.
