rabble is expanding our Parliamentary Bureau and we need your help! Support us on Patreon today!
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.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
