On this date in 1989, a gunman killed 14 women at Montreal’s École Polytechnique, before killing himself. In the suicide note he left on his body, he described his rage against women and identified their pursuit of social equality as the event that singularly “ruined his life.”
His rampage echoes acts of domestic murder and abuse that continue to be committed, even today.
