Council members and staff of the PEI Status of Women offer their heartfelt appreciation to all who contributed to the 2021 Purple Ribbon Campaign Against Violence, including the December 6th Montreal Massacre Memorial Service. We are especially grateful to those who contributed their stories, their voices, and their experiences in an effort to end violence against women. We are inspired by the courage and resilience of survivors and re-commit to amplifying their voices until all are safe, welcome, and able to live their lives fully themselves.
We remember and honour the women who have been murdered in PEI. We remember and honour the 14 women who died in Montreal in 1989. We remember and honour the thousands of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls across Canada. We remember and honour all who suffer gender-based violence.
