Every year in the land now known as Canada a vigil is held for the 14 white women killed in 1989 at Ecole Polytechnique in what is called The Montreal Massacre. These women should be, and are, remembered.
So should the many other women who are no longer here because of violence: Indigenous Women, Women of Colour, Disabled Women, Queer Women, Transgender Women, and Sex Workers…
In Decemeber 2011 we remembered the women who are often left out via a video roundtable seen below and through a review, interview, and poetry:
Day 1: Review of The Color of Violence.
Day 2: Interview with TRRC counselor Michelle Basha.
Day 3: Poetry by Chrystos and Lindsay Czintron.
Tune into Black Coffee Poet December 7th for poetry about Women Forgotten at the December 6th Vigil.
