A very Happy New Year! I hope that you’ve all had a restful and happy holiday period. The rest of this academic year is going to be a busy one for the Women’s Campaign, with at least a couple of events being organized for each month, either by the Committee or external groups. Here’s what’s coming up.

Join the London Feminists Societies’ Network, Abortion Rights, BPCA and others in picketing the launch party of the Alliance of Pro-Life Students. The groups are meeting outside the hotel “ready to greet them as a united diverse group of pro-choice activists and supporters. Dress up to show them we’re onto them, dress down to remind them what real life is like, or just turn up and stand up for our rights.” Bring your placards!
