White and a group of engineering students are creating a monument to honour victims of violence against women - this year focusing on missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and two-spirit people. The killings became known as the Montreal Massacre.

Violence against women - particularly intimate partner violence and sexual violence - is a major public health problem and a violation of women's human rights. They have also contributed to this moment in our history when feminism is something we are proud of.

On the 28th anniversary of the Montreal massacre, Regina residents gathered at the YWCA on Wednesday morning to remember the 14 victims of the shooting.

"We have to work on prevention and intervention and education, because if the community loses confidence in their safety, and their children's safety - their daughters, their wives ¬- our criminal justice system, and our peace in our country will be over", she added. That's one in four homicides. The results provided important data on the realities of women experiencing violence.

"That's one of the key goals that we have when talking about ending domestic violence because there is a stigma around that as well. There is still a power struggle, and there is still violence against women", said Carvalho. To this day, close to 40,000 people have taken the pledge.

The global campaign, wrapping up December 10th, began in New Jersey and unites individuals, organizations, activists and government leaders to take a stand against gender-based violence.

Men were present for the ceremony, which meant a lot to Keefer. Acts of gender-based violence concern us all and must be challenged, especially by those who think they have the privilege to ignore them. They are finding their courage-and everyone who has felt alone should be inspired by this newfound courage. "It was a pre-meditated attack against women who were breaking barriers and pursuing their dreams in a field traditionally dominated by men. We want to start that conversation, we want to start changing that culture and we want more men involved in that conversation and to take an active role", said Clinton.
