Circle Council Member Kimberley Young-Milani was among three women who read a passage during the memorial. The killings became known as the Montreal Massacre. While we can not change the story of these 14 young women, we remember them and reaffirm our resolve to do better and be better for women and girls with us today and tomorrow.

"It brought a very acute spotlight onto violence against women that it just doesn't happen in our homes or in far away places. Yes, there is a lot to be proud of, of things we are doing, but there's still so much work to do". It is evident in statistics such as the recently released figure from Statistics Canada which found that in 2016, women accounted for more than 150 of the 611 police-reported homicides. 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.

"I think it's an award that stems from a terrible 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.

Other events commemorating the Day of Remembrance at U of T include a ceremony at the Great Hall at Hart House on the downtown Toronto campus, a rose vigil at U of T Mississauga and a women's writing circle at U of T Scarborough.

We are living in an exceptional time right now. They are finding their courage-and everyone who has felt alone should be inspired by this newfound courage.

"When gender-based violence is eradicated, we'll all be better for it". "It was a pre-meditated attack against women who were breaking barriers and pursuing their dreams in a field traditionally dominated by men". "We have to make the change".
