The Purple Ribbon Campaign Against Violence (Campagne du ruban violet contre la violence) was initiated by the Prince Edward Island Advisory Council on the Status of Women in 1991 to remember the 14 women who were murdered at L’Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal on December 6, 1989, and to raise awareness about violence against women.
This year, over 25,000 ribbons attached to bilingual information cards will be distributed.
The theme of the 2008 Purple Ribbon Campaign Against Violence is “Men, Take a Stand with Us.”
