On December 6, 1989, fourteen women at L'Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal were singled out and murdered simply because of their gender. This horrific event functioned as an important catalyst for recognizing and supporting action against violence committed against women. In 1991 Canada's Parliament declared December 6 the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.
