CSMB statement on the 30th anniversary of the École Polytechnique de Montréal massacre

MontrealThe Canadian Society for Molecular Biosciences is currently holding its annual board meeting in Montreal on December 6th, 2019. This is the 30th anniversary of the École Polytechnique de Montréal massacre, where young women pursuing education in engineering were targeted specifically because they were women in a field that the shooter felt should be reserved for men. However, his anti-feminist hate extended beyond women in engineering and he went on to murder a woman in nursing and a female staff member. This violent misogyny has no place in Canada, in our educational institutions or our homes and yet we know that gender-based violence continues to exist at alarming rates in Canada. + + +
