Vote Rachel #1 NUS Women's Officer!

Hi, I’m Rachel and I’m running to be your NUS UK Women’s Officer! As the NUS-USI Women’s Officer, I launched the Trust Us campaign for the decriminalisation of abortion, co-created the Home to V8te solidarity campaign and submitted responses to consultations on serious sexual offences and the impact of draconian NI abortion laws respectively. As a Law student at Queen’s University Belfast, I have organised feminist demonstrations and co-written motions on the decriminalisation of sex work and abortion which form current policy at QUBSU. It would be an honour to continue organising in NUS as your National Women’s Officer!
