31 years ago He Was Fighting Feminism

In the twenty minutes before Lépine shot dead fourteen women and injured fourteen people more. Lépine separated the women from about 50 men, instructing the men to leave and stated that he was "fighting feminism" and opened fire. Lépine continued through the second and third floors, targeting women only.
