KAIROS remembers the women killed in Montreal 30 years ago

Thirty years ago today, 14 students were killed because they were women. The women, all engineering students at École Polytechnique in Montreal, were separated from their male peers and shot by their killer who vented his rage against feminists in the suicide note he pinned to himself.

Today, during the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign that began on November 25, KAIROS and its partners remember the 14 women, and stand in solidarity with all women who are attacked because of their gender and who are courageously building a safe and accepting world for all people.

In its gender justice work, KAIROS and its partners remain firmly committed to ending gender-based violence everywhere.

We remember:
