I did not know about this nasty (and potentially triggering) piece of Canadian history.

As the link explains, it needs to be remembered and we need to work to prevent repetition by ensuring that women are NOT seen as intruders in tech spaces.

That their right to be there, that our need* to have them there, is always acknowledged and respected.

*Said need, meant need. I believe that the inclusion of women in tech spaces improves outcomes for all both those who work there and those who consume what tech spaces produce.
