Charlottetown Library Learning Centre

Join the Advisory Council on the Status of Women and Carolyn MacFadyen, Vice-President of the PEI Federated Women’s Institutes, at our pinning bee to prepare ribbons for the Purple Ribbon Campaign Against Violence Against Women.

Volunteers cut thousands of ribbons, pin them to information cards, and distribute them to schools, individuals, and organizations across the Island.

Our work to heal the harms of gender-based violence begins here.

Purple ribbons are worn in honour and remembrance of the 14 women murdered in Montreal in 1989, and the 10 women murdered in PEI since 1989 by a man who knew them. We also wear purple ribbons as a call for justice for the thousands of murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls in Canada.
