L’R is taking advantage of International Women’s Day today to highlight the launch of activities around the World March of Women in Quebec. The 85 women’s centres which are members of L’R will participate in mobilizations this year, which are centered on five main issues. The issue of violence against women is a particular concern within L’R’s network.
30 years later, how much progress has been made in combating gender-based violence in Quebec? At L’R des centres de femmes du Québec, our response is “not much’’. That’s why we are organizing to denounce violence against women.
