Gender-critical feminist Holly Lawford-Smith, who has been a target of vandalismand a student-led poster campaign, is walked to and from her office by a security guard to be able to safely teach her feminism class.

The academic fears the university’s new LGBTQIA+ Inclusion Action Plan could threaten the ­future of her unit and tenure.
