The February 14th Annual Women’s Memorial March is held on Valentine’s Day each year to honour the memory of women from Vancouver's Downtown Eastside who have died due to the violence of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual abuse.
Now in its 21st year, the March is an immensely powerful women’s action that brings courage and commitment to remember and honour murdered and missing women, and to end the violence that vulnerable women in the DTES
face on a daily basis.
This March was highlighted in the film (vimeo link;possibly triggering): Survival, Strength, Sisterhood: Power of Women in the Downtown Eastside
Last October, the Women's Memorial March announced it would not participate in the "Sham Missing Women’s Inquiry
), a position
supported by many other groups
. Today, women March, to once again denounce
the inquiry and demand justice.
