The Montreal Massacre

“The reason Marc Lepine walked into that classroom in Quebec and separated the men from the women, proceeding to call them⁣ “a bunch of feminists” and systematically slaughter the women can be found not in his individual “psychological state” but in our gender divided society that legitmates violence against women. The reasons are also found in examining the current context in which we are experiencing an incredible backlash against the gains the women’s movement has made.”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ -Mary Gellaty ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ “The Montreal Massacre: An Analysis” ⁣⁣ OtherWise Publication March 8th 1990⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ https://riseuparchive.wpengine.com/collection-violence-against-women/
