“Very lively debates at the Feminist Society’s lunchtime meeting revolved around our political system, environmental issues and empowering women in politics.

“The Feminist Society has been very proactive in arranging visiting speakers and has had well-attended meetings hearing about consent issues and how stigma around sexual assault affects different genders.

“BHASVIC students have also contributed their feedback about safety in our night-time economy to the Consent in Clubs campaign.

“BHASVIC is entering the first stages of assessment for a ‘Leaders in Diversity’ accreditation and we will be surveying staff, students and external stakeholders to see where we can improve our practice with regard equality, diversity and inclusion.”

    Well I’m pleased Caroline has the time to spread her feminist doctrine – could this be her suffering from androphobia?

    It seems that with most of the Green Party’s left wing policies being hijacked by Jeremy Corbyn’s new-old Labour Party, so that Caroline has to return to her old campaigns instead.
