NUS Women’s campaign exists to represent and extend and defend the rights of women students. The Women's Campaign is open to all who self-define as women, including (if they wish) those with complex gender identities which include 'woman', and those who experience oppression as women. The NUS Women's Campaign affirms that self-definition is at the sole discretion of the individual in question. We are an autonomous campaign, which means that we are led by women students in our governance and decision-making processes.
Hareem Ghani is the elected NUS Women’s Officer for 2016-17 and we also have an elected national Women’s committee who act as representatives of Women students.
The officer, committee and policy are decided on at NUS Women’s Conference, which takes place annually with women student representatives attending from across the UK. The officer and committee are bound by our own policy and make decisions on interim policy between conferences.
Throughout the year, we work on key areas, as identified within our policy, to positively impact women students’ lives and towards the freedom from oppression and discrimination of Women.
This is done through campaigns, activism, research, development and training that we deliver and women students inform and participate in.
