Keep Karl on Parl

On Saturday, December 5, from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m., Vancouver Rape Relief & Women's Shelter will host their annual Montreal Massacre Memorial event at the Vancouver Public Library. The event happens in congruence with the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, which takes place on December 6, the anniversary of the Montreal Massacre.

This year's event will feature film screenings, lectures, roundtable conversations and more, and is free and open to the public.

In this episode, Meghan Murphy speaks with Hilla Kerner, collective member at Vancouver Rape Relief, about the event and, more broadly, what's changed and what still needs to change in terms of the national conversation around male violence against women.
