On December 6, 1989, fourteen women were killed in a shooting incident at École Polytechnique, an engineering school in Montreal, leaving people in a state of shock, confusion, and mourning. After the Montreal Massacre challenges the bias of society’s view of violence against women as an individual or indiscriminate crime and at the same time shows how many women are left with daily anxiety and threats. This typical “Femicide” case, the killing of women caused by misogyny, led to the “Rose Campaign” for ending violence against women that continues to this day; however, it also makes us consider how the present condition that hasn’t changed very much since then.
