December 6, 1989 – Université de Montréal’s École Polytechnique


Fourteen women…killed en masse because they were women

Geneviève Bergeron, 21, was a second year scholarship student in civil engineering.

Hélène Colgan, 23, was in her final year of mechanical engineering and planned to pursue her master’s degree.

Nathalie Croteau, 23, was in her final year of mechanical engineering.

Barbara Daigneault, 22, was a teaching assistant and in her final year of mechanical engineering.

Anne-Marie Edward, 21, was a first year student in chemical engineering.

Maud Haviernick, 29, was a second year student in engineering materials, a branch of metallurgy, and a graduate in environmental design.

Barbara Maria Klucznik, 31, was a second year engineering student specializing in engineering materials.

Maryse Laganière, 25, worked in the budget department of the Polytechnique.

Maryse Leclair, 23, was a fourth year student in engineering materials.

Anne-Marie Lemay, 27, was a fourth year student in mechanical engineering.

Sonia Pelletier, 28, was to graduate the next day in mechanical engineering. She was awarded a degree posthumously.

Michèle Richard, 21, was a second year student in engineering materials.

Annie St-Arneault, 23, was a mechanical engineering student.

Let us remember these and all other victims of men’s violence against women – and work to end misogyny wherever it exists.

  1. Just wanted to say what a wonderful post. I have been enjoying your blog today, it being awhile since I last visited.

    You live not far from where I live and work. Would be cool to enjoy meeting another blogger so close to me.
