25 years have passed since a group of dedicated women from the Women’s Centre of Hamilton first placed the commemorative rock at Hamilton City Hall in honour of these 14 women, and all women who have been victims of violence. The following year, the federal government established December 6th as the national Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.
