National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women - BCGEU

Brown said December 6 is about recognizing the 14 women who were killed because they were women and had the audacity to be in a traditionally men's academic program.

Shelley Yeo is the assistant executive director at ANOVA and tells 980 CFPL community involvement is key to fighting violence against women. There has been no significant reduction of the problem.

Women between the ages of 15 and 24 experience the highest rates of violence, with Indigenous women more than three times as likely to report being a victim of spousal violence as non-Indigenous woman. While we can not change the story of these 14 young women, we remember them and reaffirm our resolve to do better and be better for women and girls with us today and tomorrow. It calls for a long-overdue reflection on the social and institutional structures that promote these acts, as well as on our own actions.

But both students say they have female friends and classmates who were discouraged by their families from studying engineering or male-dominated engineering disciplines. "Together, we must all take action and get involved to help eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls".

Consider a joke about harassment or consent.

Being aware of the collective impact of these attitudes, and discussing ways to address the situation, not only among women, but among all of us, is an honest first step toward transforming our surroundings and confronting the issue. And yet, there is hope, hope for a future where people are respected, where violence is not accepted, where women and girls are secure, with the choice and opportunities to pursue their dreams. There is no such thing as an innocent bystander.

The University of Calgary's service for the lives lost on that day, attended by about 200 students, staff and faculty, provides a sombre reflection on that dark day in 1989.
