Nineteen years ago today, a gunman walked into a class at L’Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal, Quebec, let the men go, and then lined up fourteen women and shot them. According to information he’d left behind, he said he was “fighting feminism.”
If there’s a heaven, these fourteen women are there: Geneviève Bergeron, Hélène Colgan, Nathalie Croteau, Barbara Daigneault, Anne-Marie Edward, Maud Haviernick, Maryse Laganière, Maryse Leclair, Anne-Marie Lemay, Sonia Pelletier, Michèle Richard, Annie St-Arneault, Annie Turcotte, and Barbara Klucznik-Widajewicz.
If there’s a hell, he is there. And I hope we women get to watch.
