The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same: Let's Talk About Domestic Violence

The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same: Let's Talk About Domestic Violence | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it

For today, we don't even have the right to enjoy our homes, our private spaces, without fearing violence, rape, or worse. And when we dare to point that out, we are not merely dismissed, we are punished.

So many of us are still having to say, "That's life."

White Ribbon Day – Calling for an End to Violence Against Women | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it

 

 

On December 6 1989, a 25 year old man named Marc Lépine entered a classroom at École Polytechnique university in Montreal, and wielding a legally obtained Mini-14 rifle and carrying a hunting knife, and opened fire in two classrooms before turning the rifle on himself. Claiming he was “fighting feminism”, he separated the men from the women, and systematically began shooting people, specifically targeting women, leaving 14 women dead and 10 women and 4 men critically wounded. Apparently, he had left behind a suicide note in which he blamed feminism for ruining his life, and listing 19 women he considered to be feminists and whom he wished to kill. A number of the survivors later committed suicide because of the horrible nature of this crime, and the scars it left on their lives.

"Our focus is to establish the best way to get the answers we all want so urgently. We are not ruling out any options to get those answers as quickly as possible."

Women don't really matter. The law proves this to us constantly.
