December 6th marks the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. On this day 33 years ago, 14 women lost their lives in the École Polytechnique massacre because they were women. Each year, in honour of the women killed in the École Polytechnique massacre, Dalhousie’s Women in Engineering Society (WIE) hosts a memorial to commemorate the victims of the massacre, and to showcase the resiliency of women in our society.
