Women's Campaign

 

 

The Women’s Campaign exists to provide a safe space within Edinburgh University Students' Association where self-identifying women and non-binary students can come together, discuss the issues affecting them, and campaign to improve their student experience.

 

The Women's Campaign is led by the Students' Association's Women's Officer. This year's Women's Officer is Kathryn Pearson, who was elected by self-defining women and non-binary students in the Students' Association's March elections.

  • Creating feminist spaces on campus through workshops and social events
  •  
  • Welcoming new members to the Women's Campaign by ensuring all events and activities are accessible and organising outreach across all campuses
  •  
  • Increasing engagement with women and non-binary students studying STEM subjects, especially those based at King's Buildings
