My intention is to empower women, take risks, voice their opinions and make change. My South-Asian background means I am all too familiar with the rooted cultural inequalities around gender roles and responsibilities. Too many women limit themselves to certain goals and career paths without even realising they are doing so. Many countries have already recognised the need for free, accessible sanitary products and UCL should follow suit and empower women to take part in more sporting events and societies. I would set up an anonymous student female-based service to offer advice on; sexual health, well-being, and provide a free space where typically stigmatised conversations would be encouraged; particularly women’s sexual experiences and the endless uncomfortable interactions we experience that are thought to be ‘unavoidable’ or reduced down to ‘typical masculine behaviour’ . As women of colour these conversations can be difficult to have with elders and many are left feeling alone and vulnerable.. The reality is all females experience this feeling of impotence. I would organise inspiration days/events filled with workshops and talks from women from diverse backgrounds to help female encouragement, body positivity and attempt to breakdown what we envisage as a ‘successful women’. Women often base our ‘success’ on traditionally unattainable male oriented benchmarks, when in fact it can take any form and is an individualistic concept which women need to be reminded of
