The Students' Union at UWE is one of few that does not currently have a Women's Officer.
Sexism is still a thing and it needs to be tackled. Feminism is not about hating men, it is about challenging discriminatory attitudes that still takes place.
Research conducted shows that 1 in 4 female students have faced sexual harassment at university. Further research conducted showed that issues with mental health arose after such harassment.
Hyper-masculinity is severely impacting men and their mental health also. Hyper-masculinity affects both men and women, creates unrealistic ideals, and potentially intimidating atmospheres.
The creation of a Women's Officer will help to run campaigns (e.g. International Women's Day), represent female students, and work in partnership with the other Liberation Officers.
