Please Vote Tabz #1 for Women's Officer
I'm running for Women's Officer because I believe in a Students' Union where the diversity of women students is supported and celebrated, where students are empowered to develop and deliver campaigns that matter to them, and where safety is paramount. I am an independent candidate with no party politics.
If I become Women's Officer, I will ensure:
-Tackling Governmental cuts are a priority of the Executive
-Women's political representation within the Union is protected, decided by self defining women and extended across all faculties and liberation campaigns.
-A diverse range of women, incl. student parents, postgraduates, mature, BME, international, LGBTQ and disabled women to name but a few feel represented and empowered.
