Is there any reason why Yizkor, in particular, Should be said in shul/with minyan rather than alone?

Is there any reason why YIZKOR in particular, Should be said in shul (the synagouge) rather than at home? Why is it common (orthodox) practice that women who almost never attend Shul make an extreme effort to come to shul for Yizkor?
