Right, back from a huge week of training I returned to the office to answer masses of emails. Most of them being replies to my ULU Women's Studies Series project. The project involves a series of free lectures/seminars/workshops across London universities on gender/women/feminist related topics. It also hopes to highlight Women in Academia, campaigning against sexism in academia and for more opportunities for women going into PHDs.
I also had a visit from Royal Holloway Disabled Students' Officer :) Always happy to see liberation officers about. I met quite a few at ULU Training but I still need to meet the rest! On that note started to shape ULU Women's Officer training so if you are a women's officer or women's representative at a london students' union please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to attend :)
This day was dedicated mostly to the Hollaback! UL project. Myself and the Hollaback! NY Website wizes are still in the process of building the best interactive website possible for the project. Another related thing I was adding to the website in information about the upcoming ULU Women self defence classes. There's a lot of interest so make sure you check out the facebook page for information on the course.
On Thursday I also got really caught up in sorting out banding and promotion for the new liberation campaigns. Lots of stress but its all going to be worth it.
After working flat out last week in Lancaster and away at the weekend in Birmingham at UK Feminista Summer School. I thought I'd take a day off. Good thing I did because I was really ill the night before but Yay for self-care :)
