Geneviève, Hélène, Annie, Nathalie, Barbara, Anne-Marie, Maud, Maryse, Sonia, Michèle, Barbara, Annie, Anne-Marie, Maryse. These are the names of 14 young women aged 20 to 31 whom we will never forget. December 6, 1989, is a day that will forever remain engraved in our collective memory. That day, twenty-eight years ago, the horrible face of misogyny reared its ugly head when 14 women were massacred simply because they were women.
