WINNIPEG – Nearly 200 people marched to remember women who have died from violence or have gone missing in Winnipeg on Sunday afternoon.

The mother of Jennifer Catcheway, who’s been missing since 2008, was one the people who walked in the ninth annual Women’s Memorial March of Manitoba.

“We never forget and we never want anybody to forget, our children are out there, our loved ones are out there still missing,” said Bernice Catcheway.

Some marchers wore decorated paper butterflies that symbolized women who have been killed or who have gone missing.

“I haven’t given up on my family. I’m still here and hoping one day that my voice will be heard,” said Sue Caribou, whose niece Tanya Nepinak disappeared in 2011.

The annual Women’s Memorial March began after woman was murdered in Vancouver’s downtown east side.
