More sinister messages sent to uWaterloo e-mail accounts

March 16, 2011

More sinister e-mails have been sent to University of Waterloo accounts, despite the best efforts of campus and local police to catch the perpetrator. The latest is an e-mailed photo of what appears to be the nuclear facilities in Japan, with a picture of Marie Curie. Sent from an anonymous Gmail account, the e-mailed images are the latest in a series featuring Curie, who is portrayed as a symbol of why women should not have power. Anti-female actions last month left many women at uWaterloo feeling vulnerable and targeted, resulting in a criminal investigation. Waterloo Region Record
