Candidate for the position of Women's Officer Election

Women deserve better from our university. Sexual violence and harassment remain prevalent, and women are too often held back by misogyny and its intersections. As co-chair of Oxford SU’s Women’s campaign I helped bring women together to discuss feminism, establish support networks and campaign for change. From working with Irish activists in demonstrating and fundraising for the Repeal the Eighth campaign to tackling sexual violence on campus I learnt that the strength of the feminist movement is in its diversity and in the solidarity we have for each other. I want to bring the women at this university together to enact real lasting change. As a trans woman I have been lucky to work with and be supported by some deeply compassionate women activists and I want to extend the same support to women who are often excluded from certain types of feminism. Feminism is nothing without women of colour, migrant, disabled, queer, trans, Black and sex working women. As women’s officer I intend to focus on ensuring harassment is dealt with appropriately, sex working students receive support, student parents have a place to study and that we remain a pro-choice SU. Vote Dan Orr for women’s officer.
