December 6 Fund

Micro loans to women attempting to escape abusive homelives. Give generously, today especially.
From the website of the December 6 Fund of Toronto:

On December 6, 1989 Marc Lepine entered the Ecole Polytechnique, in Montreal, Quebec. He separated the men from the women and declaring his hatred for feminists, killed the following women:

Genevieve Bergeron, 21
Helene Colgan, 23
Nathalie Croteau, 23
Barbara Daigneault, 22
Anne-Marie Edward, 21
Maud Haviernick, 29
Barbara Maria Klucznik, 31
Maryse Laganiere, 25
Maryse Leclair, 23
Anne-Marie Lemay, 27
Sonia Pelletier, 23
Michele Richard, 21
Annie St-Arneault, 23
Annie Turcotte, 21

On December 6, in addition to remembering the 14 women who were killed in Montreal, we also mourn the many women who continue to die, each year, as a result of male violence. While the Massacre victims were murdered together, the death toll of women killed alone – by men they know – rises annually.

NOTE: I tried to get the accents correct in all the names, but the computing device is not cooperating this morning. Apologies.
