Hi, I'm Alys, the Women's Officer for this year!
The purpose of my role is to support and represent all women on campus, whilst addressing issues which affect women the world over. The women's campaign is entirely inclusive, representing and made up of women that belong to all ethnic, religious and class backgrounds, along with women that define as trans, queer, bisexual and lesbian. We also aim to support and represent student parents and carers.
My main campaign priorities this year will be centred around three issues: sexual harassment on campus and in Coventry and Leamington, student parents and carers, and sexual entertainment venues. These three issues affect all students, not only women, in our daily lives and I believe tackling these issues would directly improve the experiences of women at our university.
I will also be organising International Women's Week, to take place between the 4th and 8th March 2013, where I hope to address not only the issues above, but also the gender pay gap, sexism in the work place, domestic abuse and international issues such as sex trafficking.
