It is estimated that over 700 Indigenous women have gone missing and been murdered in Canada since 1980. The issues of violence against Indigenous women is often thought to be an issue that takes place just in the prairie provinces or in BC along the highway of tears, but violence against Indigenous women takes place in every province, every city, and every town across Turtle Island.

Feb 14th, 2013: Over 700 gathered at St. Laurent Metro this Valentine’s Day to make this year, Montreal’s 4th annual memorial march for missing and murdered women the largest yet.

Her name is not spoken today out of respect for the wishes of her family. Out of this sense of hopelessness and anger came an annual march on Valentine’s Day to express compassion, community, and caring for all women in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, Unceded Coast Salish Territories. Twenty-two years later, the women’s memorial march continues to honour the lives of all missing and murdered women. Video by Spencer...
