December 6, 1989
Background Note: The women whose
names appear above were
murdered on December 6, 1989 at the Ecole
Polytechnique in Montreal, Canada. A gunman walked into a classroom of
engineering students, asked all the men to leave the room and
proceeded to gun down 27 women, killing these 14
women engineering students.
Men For Change formed in response to this horrific event to take
responsibility, as men, for ending male violence. We believe
that the Montreal Massacre was a symbol of the ongoing war against women
in our society, not the isolated act of a madman. The members of the group
are dedicated to ensuring that women, men, and children can live in a world
that is free from the culture of violence which is responsible for the
deaths of these women.
