National Day of Remembrance & Action On Violence Against Women

rose of remembrance

Sometime after 4 p.m. on December 6, 1989, an enraged gunman roamed the corridors of Montreal’s École Polytechnique and killed 14 women. He separated the men from the women and before opening fire on the classroom of female engineering students he screamed, “I hate feminists.” Almost immediately, the Montreal Massacre became a galvanizing moment in which mourning turned into outrage about all violence against women.
