The White Ribbon Campaign is a Canadian effort that has spread to over 55 countries world-wide. The effort is based on the ideal that no woman should ever be hurt by a man. Idealistic yes, but a very achievable goal none the less.
Born from the memory of the École Polytechnique Massacre where on December 6, 1989 Marc Lépine walked into the school armed with a Mini-14 rifle and a grudge against women. He shot at 28 people before killing himself.
