Brighton Pavilion MP Caroline Lucas spoke about the role of women in politics at a meeting of the Feminist Society at Brighton, Hove and Sussex VI Form College (BHASVIC).
The Green MP took part in a lively debate at the college, in Dyke Road, Hove, on Friday (2 December).
The college said: “Caroline Lucas MP was invited by BHASVIC’s Feminist Society to discuss the role of women in politics.
“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.”
