On Monday, interns at the Women’s Resource and Research Center (WRRC) reported that a life-sized representation of a Barbie doll had been hung with a noose in North Hall.
“This act comes at a time in which the Student Life Centers have been under attack and is a reminder of the acts of hate perpetrated on this campus,” stated a release by the WRRC.
According to a representative from WRRC, the female figure that was hung had been built by students for a project to show the unrealistic expectations that society has for women.
As of press time on Tuesday, no further information about the incident had been released.
The UC Davis Police is investigating the incident. Anyone who has information about the incident is encouraged to call UC Davis Police at (530) 752-1727.
