WOMEN'S OFFICER

Sub Zero policies

The expansion of zero tolerance policies in SU venues has been confirmed with majority votes on SU Ideas. It will take full effect as soon as possible. This SU Idea also revoked the rule that students will not receive bans if their guests do.

Safety

Another agenda is tackling safety off campus. Along with the VP of Welfare and Community, we are planning self-defence classes and will look into making off-campus routes safer when travelling home. Kung Fu Just Play sessions are running this term Mondays 7-8:30pm in Activity Hall 1, Sports Centre and are completely free!

Women of the Future Campaign

Currently working with the President to raise awareness for the campaign. As well as, help create funding so we can hit that £500,000 target. We have made signs in order to promote this and will follow up later this term.

NUS Womens Conference

The NUS Womens Conference over the holidays was a success and motions passed with little complications. We attended seminars and workshops on 'Tackling Lad Culture' and 'Fighting for Abortion Rights.' We will use this advice and information to tackle our own problems at Essex. Sarah Ryder and myself are keen to help with raising awareness of the struggles of abortion rights here and in the UK. Ruth Raymer ran for and was voted in as the new NUS Caring Responsibilities Rep on the Women's Committee!
