Sophia Guo is a University of Toronto student and feminist activist who participated in the November 16, 2012 protest against the free speech of Dr. Warren Farrell, an activist for men and boys. Dr. Farrell came to U of T to lecture on the problems of suicide and educational failure of young men.
Guo openly posted on the internet that she had vandalized posters promoting the event, and made several public statements advocating sex based violence toward men and boys. She also, with apparent irony, was captured on video stating that men’s rights organizations were “actually hate groups.”
Guo’s coduct likely stemmed from the climate of violence and censorship toward activists for men and boys so pervasive at the University of Toronto.
