Homerton Women’s Campaign

Hello Homertonians!

I’m Livvy and I’m excited to be your Women’s Officer this year! First up, I would like to say that I am not only here for those of you who identity as female, but for everyone with an interest in gender equality, feminism and women’s issues.

I Am here for:

  • Informing you on the CUSU Women’s Campaign and answering any questions relating to it
  • Any concerns or queries you may have relating to college matters that affect women
  • Talking about any problems you may encounter where someone has made you feel uncomfortable because of your gender
  • Encouraging participation at events on gender issues
  • Promoting healthy discussion on the struggle for gender equality in Cambridge and far, far beyond

If gender injustice makes you angry or mildly uncomfortable, join the Facebook group Homerton Gender Equality 2015-2016 and help us make this world a fairer place!

Look out for:

International Women’s Day

When: Tuesday 8 March 2016
Where: Everywhere
What: International Women’s Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. In some places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women’s Day is a national holiday.
Why: Suffragettes campaigned for women’s right to vote. The word ‘Suffragette’ is derived from the word “suffrage” meaning the right to vote. International Women’s Day honours the work of the Suffragettes, celebrates women’s success, and reminds of inequities still to be redressed.

CUSU Women’s Campaign

The Cambridge University Student Union’s Women’s Campaign is incredibly active.
Here’s what they have to say:

The Women’s Campaign supports and represents all women students in the university. Our Women’s Campaign is inclusive; we are made up of women that belong to all ethnic, religious and class backgrounds, women that define as trans, queer, bisexual and lesbian and women who are student parents.

The Women’s Campaign is a voice for change in the University. As the Women’s Campaign, we are able to push for change in how this university runs and in university culture affecting women students’ day to day college lives.
