The Women’s Campaign exists to provide a safe space within Edinburgh University Students' Association where self-identifying women 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 Martha Reilly, who was elected by self-defining women students in the Students' Association's March elections.

Campaigns and Events
You can read Martha's full manifesto which she was elected on here
but the issues she is planning to focus on this year are:
- Continue to support survivors of gender-based violence by establishing a peer support network, embed the #NoExcuse campaign into staff training, and ensure appropriate services are in place.
- Build a community within the Women’s Campaign which is able to engage new members while creating space for women who experience intersecting oppressions.
- Continue to build momentum behind Fight for the Night and International Women’s Day by designing creative and inclusive programmes.
Each year in March, the Women's Campaign leads the Students' Association's International Women's Day celebrations, organising panel discussions, film screenings, and social events. If you'd like to be involved in arranging 2020's programme, please email email@example.com
