I was a recent engineering student graduate from McGill University when 14 women, twelve of whom were engineering students, were murdered at École Polytechnique de Montréal in an antifeminist mass shooting on December 6, 1989.
The engineering field has made progress in the last 33 years but there is still more to be done. While there is not much written on the subject yet, I do believe the entry – and sustained increase – of women into the engineering profession has changed the trajectory of the field forever and for the better.
