Thirty years after the Montreal Massacre that killed 14 women, new threats such as the incel movement pose dangers to the feminist movement.
On Dec. 6, 1989, 14 women were murdered at École Polytechnique. Women in a mechanical engineering class were targeted, and 30 years later the ratio of women to men in engineering hasn't improved much.
When 14 women were killed at École Polytechnique in 1989, no one at the time considered it an act of terrorism. Three decades later, that's exactly how it should be viewed.
The day of remembrance and action, also called White Ribbon Day, marks the anniversary of the murders of 14 female engineering students killed in 1989 at l'École Polytechnique de Montréal.
