When I asked my flatmates to stop making sexist jokes, I was shot down, told by the guys and girls that it was just harmless ‘banter’ and I shouldn’t get so upset…Perhaps the most shocking thing I have learnt from all of this is that behaviour that derides women is so acceptable at our seats of learning.”

“Universities seldom take action in relation to sexist incidents, often suggesting that women need to take responsibility for keeping themselves safe…that lad culture punishes those women students who step up to lead the struggle for women’s equality is proof that it contributes to women’s continued oppression.”
