Also why feminism is not “equality for both genders.” Feminism is liberation for women.
It is December 6th, and I remember.
I was 13 years old when Marc Lépine opened fire and murdered 14 women for being at engineering school when he wasn’t. He blamed feminism for the situation he was in, and murdered these women for being in non-traditional jobs, for being there.
Every year, the memorials I go to are different. Some are quiet - I remember several winters in the snow, holding candles and reciting names like a talisman against violence.

When I was younger, they seemed impossibly mature and sophisticated. I used to imagine them laughing and enjoying university, cut down without warning. Now that I’m 35, they seem so young, and I wonder if they were afraid.—
Self reblog from last year. Still worth reading. Still remembering.

But instead of $30, the prevailing price for the blouses in the three months preceding her purchase was $17.99—exactly the same as the sale price she paid, the lawsuit alleges.

Similar cases are pending against Kohl’s Corp. and Jos A. Bank Clothiers Inc. A Kohl’s spokeswoman didn’t reply to requests for comment. In its most recent quarterly filing, the company said the legal proceedings it faces likely won’t have a material effect. A Jos A.
