Feminist killjoy who studies pharmacy, draws, and tries to make a difference. Likes Doc Martens, Rubik’s cubes, and racoons. If lost, probably in the library or the pub giggling by herself at cat/dog videos.

(28.06.15) – Hey you! Yes you about to post on Yik Yak about FemSoc

Content Warning: brief mentions of harassment, rape threats, sexual harassment, menstrual blood, some examples of trolling including concern trolling (regarding body weight), mild swearing.

My name is Asia. I’m on the UUEAS Feminist Society committee for next year. I was last year too, and it’s really opened my eyes to how straight-up rude and cruel people like you can be to other people who are striving for equality. I want to get real with you, adult to adult.’

(25.04.15) – Universities and Sexual Assault: The Hunting Ground

TW: rape, sexual assault, sex-shaming

‘On the 15th April 2015, the Union of UEA students held a free film screening of The Hunting Ground, a documentary about sexual assault on american college campuses. It was made by the same Academy Award-nominated team that created The Invisible War, a film about sexual assault in the United States Military. The documentary was followed by a skype call with the director, Kirby Dick, and a discussion with a panel consisting of Holly Staynor (Welfare, Community and Diversity Officer), Beth Smith (Women’s Officer), Anjali Menezes (Sexual Assault Awareness Committee), and me from the UEA Feminist Society Committee.’

(23.02.15) – No More Page 3: Boycotting The Daily Star

‘On 24th October 2013, a motion was passed at a UEA Union Council meeting which identified the issues with The Sun and decided to boycott the newspaper from Union outlets. On 12th February 2015, I brought forward a motion which amended the original one to include The Daily Star as part of the boycott. It passed, but not without its fair share of controversy and debate.’
