So, for some reason, York University Students Union is refusing to support a new Feminism Society. Their reasoning is fairly nonsensical, saying that the Women’s Committee branch of the union does pretty much the same thing so there’s no need for a feminism society.
Which would be all well and good, if, you know, having officers responsible for making sure equality on campus and having a space for feminist discussions was the same thing. Which they aren’t. Obviously.
Anyway, feminists in York are rightly pissed off at this nonsense and trying to make some noise. I support their attempt to get recognition and a space to meet.
Give them some friendly words if you support them too, and you might also be interested in signing this petition.
