On December 6, 1989, a man in his mid-twenties entered L'Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal. He took with him a rifle. Blaming feminists for ruining his life, he shot and killed fourteen young women whose only crime was to seek higher education. December 6 is the day to remember them, and all acts of violence against women.

Their names were:

Genevieve Bergeron

Nathalie Croteau

Anne-Marie Edward

Maryse Laganiere

Anne-Marie Lemay

Michele Richard

Annie Turcotte

Helene Colgan

Barbara Daigneault

Maud Haviernick

Maryse LeClair

Sonia Pelletier

Annie St-Arneault

Barbara Klucznik-Widajewicz



Remember them.

Thank you for making the post; it's Important.

These women would have been in their mid to late forties, same age as me. Sad when you think of all the lives not lived.

Thanks for posting, I forgot this year.
