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 Esme Allman, who was elected by self-defining women and non-binary students in the Students' Association's March elections.
