I'm Becca Harrington and I've been your Women's Officer in the Brookes Union for two years now. I'm a second year International Relations and Politics Student and also help to manage the Feminist Society and Labour Club. My mandate is predominantly concerned with the interests of self-identifying women and non-binary students and that takes many forms. Sometimes it's representation in Union Council or in meetings about decisions that may affect your university experience, other times it's in terms of lobbying on your behalf and running campaigns around issues that are relevant to my role.
I've been involved with a lot over the past couple of years but my most significant achievements include the sexual misconduct and hate crime research study and project which aims to improve reporting about the university, the consent campaign that's ongoing, the sexual violence signposting resources I've collated, women's week which I've been running for two years now and the emergency sanitary pad supply scheme.
I've also forged stronger links with our local trade union branches, UCU and Unison and you can read the statement of solidarity with the USS Pension Dispute Strikes that I passed through union council here.
If you'd like to know more about any of the above or to chat about campaigns you'd like to see, you can contact me:
via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
on my Union Facebook profile
and on Twitter
I'm also happy to help with any issues you may be experiencing or to answer any questions you might have.
