National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

 

Today in 1989, 14 women were murdered because they were women. A man, who shall remain nameless because he doesn’t deserve to be remember by anything other then his actions, shot and killed 14 women just because they were women. He felt like they didn’t deserve a chance to in the world, that they didn’t belong in the school, and it was their fault he wasn’t in that school.

Here is a list of the women who passed because they do deserve to be remembered because they were unfairly taken from this world too soon:

  • 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
  • Barbara Klucznik-Widajewicz

Today, as well as remember these lives of these women, we also vow that violence against women is never ok. Today we will remember.
