The Annual Women’s Memorial March is just over a week away, with events happening across Canada around February 14.

This year events will be held in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside on February 13 and 14. Find information here. The first Women’s Memorial March was held in 1991 after the murder of an Indigenous woman on Powell Street in Vancouver.

A new film by Alejandro Zuluaga and Harsha Walia, based on a concept by the Downtown Eastside Power of Women Group, tells us about the history of the march and its continuing importance today.
