Rhiannon Hedge has been re-elected as NUS Wales Womens’ Officer for a further year. The NUS Wales Womens’ Conference also saw the election of this year’s committee, steering officer and the passing of new policy. 

The NUS Wales Womens Officer also launched the Zero Tolerance Toolkit that will aim to provide Welsh students’ unions with a guide to dealing with sexual harassment, stalking and violence on campus.

Here’s what Rhiannon Hedge had to say about her re-election, conference and the toolkit:

Hailey Townsend, Bridie Sedgebeer and Fiona  Dickson were elected onto the NUS Wales Womens’ Campaign Committee and Grace Burton as Steering Officer.

All 6 proposed motions were passed that will aim in the year ahead to:

  • Keep anti-choice groups off Welsh university and college campuses
  • Write a lad culture charter for the students’ union clubs and societies
  • Research FE students’ experiences of lad culture and sexism at colleges in Wales
  • Establish a networking platform for Wales which would allow feminist student groups and officers to communicate and organise
  • Produce a briefing on what students’ unions can do to tackle sexism in student union elections
  • Share best practice on grassroots campaigns against harassment on campuses across Wales.

Delegates also received a work shop from the Student Sex Work Project’s Jacky Tyrie:

“It’s great to have engaged with such enthusiastic delegates today at the NUS Wales Womens’ Conference about issues relating to sexual health and student sex workers.

“We want to hear from all students about their views on student’s involvement in sex work. They can visit us online to find out all about our work and research”.

Friday saw the last of the NUS Wales Liberation Conferences 2013.
