Manifesto summary: 

I've been actively involved with the Women's Network for four years now. I've loved being a part of the Network, and I want to build on our previous successes, and make the Network bigger and more active than ever! My priorities for next year are: continuing the Zero Tolerance to Sexual Harassment campaign; integrating IoE students into the Women's Network; co-operating more with UCLU clubs and societies; and continuing to provide support for students who want to run their own events or campaigns in conjunction with the Women's Network on campus. I want a campus which is safe for all students, and a Women's Network that reaches out and supports all students who self-define as women, have more complex gender identities which include 'woman', or experience oppression as women.
