I’m Clopin, a 3rd year Film Studies/Philosophy student. I’m really passionate about campaigning for gender equality, and have worked hard to do so this year in my roles as President of Feminist Society, and SRC Representative for my school. This year FemSoc has organised a great variety of events around women’s issues and trans issues, and generated a lot of new interest. In my position on Council I proposed the SRC support the No More Page 3 campaign, which got loads of support from students and passed in a landslide vote. I’m confident that as Gender Equality Officer I can continue to do such work, and more.
As Gender Equality Officer I will:
- raise awareness on campus of issues of gender inequality, and campaign to change these
- get more information in the university support services and SRC Advice Centre on abortion and reproductive rights, and for survivors of sexual violence
- work to get more gender neutral toilets around campus. We’ve got one in the QM, and this is fantastic, but I want to see this across the whole university.
- work with the university management and the unions to keep up a zero tolerance policy on sexual harassment, homophobia and transphobia.
