Purple Ribbon Pinning Bee

The Status of Women will be holding their annual event to pin purple ribbons to bookmarks for use in schools, businesses, and organizations across the Island in the community kitchen of the Charlottetown Learning Library on November 8 between 6:30-8 pm. The 2023/24 campaign theme to end gender violence is: Healing Gender-Based Violence Begins Here. Sheila Gallant, president of the Women’s Institute, will speak about the commitment of WI members to the purple ribbon campaign and to preventing violence in PEI communities. The 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 someone who knew them. Purple ribbons are also worn as a call for justice for the thousands of murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls in Canada, and as a reminder that gender violence must end. All are welcome for coffee, tea, snacks and conversation. For more information contact Michelle at: info@peistatusofwomen.ca
