About

The Women’s Campaign (WomCam) supports and represents all women, people who have 'woman' as part of their identity and others who may have experienced misogyny at any point, although our ultimate aim is to work towards equality of all genders. We bring together feminist collectives across the University and campaign for change at an institutional, social and cultural level. We are also a community of care and solidarity, providing a welcoming and celebratory environment for both undergraduates and postgrads. 

Everyone who identifies with the campaign is welcome to attend our events and make use of WomCam's space throughout their time at Cambridge. Gender will never be questioned at our gatherings as we assume that if you are present, the space is meant for you! 

There are lots of different ways to get involved in WomCam's activities: 

  • Join our mailing list!
  • Follow us on social media to see what events and campaigns we are running
  • Come to our fortnightly forums (Wednesdays at 6pm)
  • Contact your college Gender Equalities Officer
  • Run in committee elections!
  • Contact the committee with any questions or ideas (see the 'contact us' section)

What are we doing this year?

The activities of the campaign are led by an elected committee of students in a range of roles. The committee includes the SU Women's Officer, Rosie Freeman, who is accountable to the campaign and its members. Here are some of the key projects we are working on in 2022-23: 

  • Fighting trans-exclusionary feminism; we recently updated our Spotting TERF Ideology Guide
  • Making nightclubs safer and improving signposting of policies in place
  • Tackling period poverty 
  • Working with the other campaigns to ensure we are intersectional in our work
  • Tackling drink spiking
  • Reforming disciplinary procedures through DRAG

Think there is something missing? Come along to forum or contact us. We always welcome new ideas!

Some reflections on the male gaze.

No, I am not a sight, I am a presence. I am a presence that is seen on occasion but, most of the time, is felt. And the person who feels it the most is me. So, I hope this mindset will help me ignore the surveyor even when he continues to survey. I can give up on trying to expand my field of vision to include myself.

Attraction to the emotionally stunted man: constructing a fantasy.

Fantasies are not apolitical. Whilst not all aspects of fantasies are translated into real-life relationships, fantasies are an important facet of our understanding and expectations of romance. We all deserve healthy emotional romance, and so we must be self-aware in the way we fantasize.
