About

The Women’s Campaign supports and represents all women (including those who self-define as women) and non-binary students at Cambridge. We bring together feminist organising across the University and campaign for change at an institutional, social and cultural level. Alongside organising, we are also a community of care and solidarity amongst women and non-binary students, providing a space that will welcome and celebrate you through your time at Cambridge. 

All those who self-define as woman and non-binary are welcome to attend and make use of the WomCam space (if they wish to do so) throughout their time at Cambridge. Your gender is never questioned at WomCam events - we assume that if you are here, that this space is meant for you! Our campaign is made up of both undergraduate and postgraduate students from different ethnic, religious and class backgrounds, trans women, queer, bisexual and lesbian women, disabled women and student parents. 

There are lots of different ways to get involved in campaign activities: 

  • Come to our weekly forums every Tuesday at 7pm! 
  • We hold feminist discussion groups and social events every Thursday
  • Contact your college Women's Officer.
  • Run in committee elections!
  • Contact us with any questions or ideas (see the contact us section). 
  • Join our community group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/20641600072669

Reclaim the Night march

What are we doing this year?

The activties of the campaign are lead by an elected committee compromised of women and non-binary students in a range of roles. Amongst these is the full-time Women's Officer, Chloe Newbold, who is accountable to the campaign and it's members. Here are some of the key projects we are working on in Michaelmas 2020: 

  • Safe campuses - consent education and fighting sexual violence in Higher Education. 
  • Feminist education & discussion groups. 
  • Fighting trans-exclusionary feminism - we're planning to upate our How to Spot TERF ideology guide. 
  • Community building during the pandemic. 
  • Politics of Care - we will be focusing on supporting students with care responsibilities and making collective care a central aspect of our organising! 
  • Supporting student sex workers. 
  • Tackling period Period Poverty across Cambridge 
  • Working with the other campaigns to ensure we are working against all axes of oppression.
