December 6: National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women in Canada, part of the official 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign. In 1989, a 25 year-old man named Marc Lepine walked into the University of Montreal's School of Engineering Building with semi-automatic rifle. He began a shooting spree during which he murdered fourteen women and injured thirteen others: nine women and four men. Lepine believed it was because of women students that he was not accepted to the engineering school. In 1991, the Canadian government proclaimed December 6th National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. AAUW OpEd: Groups work against gender-based violence.
