LSE Students’ Union is now reviewing its own policy to ensure we have a clearly recognisable statement on Lad Culture; we will be encouraging the institution to follow in making lad culture is not tolerated on campus.
We are currently working on re-launching our campaign, AU for All, this focuses on diversifying the Athletics Union and making it an inclusive environment for all Liberation groups. Following this we have been working closely with the Men’s Rugby team to put on an event entitled ‘Tackling Homophobia and Sexism in Rugby’.
