A vigil will take place Tuesday on the UWindsor campus in honour of the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.
In 1991, the Parliament of Canada created the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women in response to the massacre of 14 women — most of whom were engineering students — at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal on December 6th, 1989.
Starting at 5:30pm, the candlelight vigil will take place at the Memorial of Hope, between Dillon and Essex halls, to honour the 14 women killed.
A reception will follow at approximately 6pm in the Ambassador Auditorium at the CAW Student Centre.
