Women Students

NUS Women’s campaign represents women students around the country and works to extend and defend their rights. The 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. We affirm that self-definition is at the sole discretion of the individual in question. 

As an autonomous campaign we are led by and governed by women students. The officers, committee and policies are decided at the summer conference which is attended by women student representatives from across the country.

Throughout the year, we work on key areas identified by our policies to better the lives of women students and towards freedom from oppression. We do this by running campaigns backed up by research and training activists to fight for the change they want to see on campus and wider society.

The 2019/20 Womens Officer is Rachel Watters.
