NUS Women's Campaign for Women's History Month
This March, we are collaborating with the NUS Women's Campaign for Women's History Month 2019. The NUS Women's Campaign work to represent and advocate on behalf of Women Students across Further and Higher Education in the UK.
They are doing amazing work, including improving access, tackling sexual harassment and violence in Further and Higher Education, delivering activist workshops for a Stop and Scrap of Universal Credit, running panel events on Black Women in Academia, and launching an ‘End Detention Now’ resource to help students mobilise against detention centres.
NUS Women's Campaign are also hosting an evening of music, poetry, and conversation on March 15th at SOAS Students' Union, in support of Imkaan. Imkaan are a UK-based, Black feminist organisation, and the only national second-tier women’s organisation dedicated to addressing violence against Black and minoritised women and girls. Tickets are now available on a sliding scale, and purchasable here.
