Remember, Honour & Inspire Change
"You're women", you're going to be engineers. You're all a bunch of feminists. I hate feminists."
Marc Lepine's words before he shot and killed 14 female engineering students at l'Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal.
That was December 06, 1989.
Today, we ask you to remember, honour and insprire change in the name of all the women who lost their lives:
Simply because they are women. Who wanted to be engineers.
May we continue to fight for a world in which women and girls have access to all fields of study and work without the threat of violence.
Today is the National Day of Rememberance and Action on Violence against Women.
