Queen’s student attacked after receiving threatening emails

March 31, 2014

A Queen’s University student is alleging she was attacked by a stranger after receiving threatening emails about her support for feminist activities on campus. Danielle d’Entremont says she was walking out of her house last Wednesday evening, when the stranger punched her in the face several times, causing d’Entremont to lose half a tooth. d’Entremont notes that while she isn’t sure whether the attack is related to her feminist activities, the man did know her by name. According to a Queen’s student newspaper, d'Entremont has been actively involved in opposing a Men's Issues Awareness Society event that took place last week, which featured a controversial lecture on "feminism's double standards." Kingston police say they are investigating an assault on a Queen's student, and add they are aware of the "potential context in regards to the topic of feminism, equality and that men's issues awareness group."
