Anti-Feminist Speaker Inspires Donation to UC Davis Women's Center

When members of the University Writing Program learned that conservative pundit Milo Yiannopoulos would speak at UC Davis, they decided to help the kind of organization his writing attacks.

UWP members recently raised $400 to donate to the UC Davis Women's Research and Resources Center. They chose WRRC because of Yiannopoulos's widely publicized criticism of feminists in the video game and film industry.

Yiannopoulos has been accused of using his Breitbart News column to facilitate the online harassment of women, such as the all-female cast of 2016's Ghostbusters movie.
