Polytechnique presents scholarship in honour of Montreal massacre victims

Seven out of 10 Albertans have known a woman who has experienced physical or sexual abuse, McLean said. They have also contributed to this moment in our history when feminism is something we are proud of.

Kimberley Young-Milani of the Circle Women's Collective lights a candle in remembrance during a ceremony at My Sisters' Place that honours the victims of the Montreal Massacre.

"We have to work on prevention and intervention and education, because if the community loses confidence in their safety, and their children's safety - their daughters, their wives ¬- our criminal justice system, and our peace in our country will be over", she added.

For the past two years, women have made up 40 per cent of first-year engineers at U of T - the highest proportion in Canada. Even when a person insists they meant nothing by it, it still promotes a culture of violence and discrimination that has serious and real impact on women.

The report shows that one-third (33.6%) of respondents reported experiencing domestic violence from an intimate partner.

"I think it's an award that stems from a frightful tragedy, and I think this is an excellent way to try to turn that around years later and make something positive of the fact that women are now recognized as making important contributions in engineering", she said.

Ceremonies take place throughout the day to remember those slain.

"It is an issue of power and control", she says of gender-based violence, then and now.

On the anniversary of the massacre at Ecole Polytechnique, people like Senior take time out of their busy days to commemorate the young lives lost in a shocking act of violence, women killed simply for being women. Survivors of gender-based violence are coming together, speaking as one, and standing shoulder to shoulder.

But both students say they have female friends and classmates who were discouraged by their families from studying engineering or male-dominated engineering disciplines.

Today, we mark our country's enduring connection to 14 women who were silenced while pursuing their dreams. "It is really critical for us in our perspective that the energy of anger be harnessed but in a way that creates positive change".
