I have to admit that I did not know of this horrifying event until now. Let us never forget…

On December 6th, 1989, Marc Lepine walked into École Polytechnique University and purposefully killed 14 women claiming that feminists are ruining his life and their time had come.

One could argue that this is an isolated moment in history, until you read what Canada’s Minister of Justice told the House of Commons: “We may never understand what occurred, why this happened, why these women were singled out for this horrific act of violence.”

And then we start all over again. His motives were absolutely clear – he went to fill “feminists”, women students at an engineering university who were studying to fulfil jobs that traditionally men took.

As with racism, classism, and religious intolerance, our societies also have a problem with a hatred towards women being given equal rights as men. Yes, it’s difficult for the un-offended party to understand this. Especially for the repressing party to understand it.

But we will continue with hope that one day, this silly inequality will no longer affect us.
