In these elections, I'm running to be a delegate for the NUS Women's Conference. At the conference, I will ensure to bring all of your concerns to the forefront of the national agenda and will strive to represent you.
COMBATTING SEXUAL HARRASMENT
During my time at KCL, I've worked on the anti-sexual harrasment campaign, It Stops Here and will aim to support it on a national level. I will also push for consent and bystander workshops and safe spaces for survivors.
Ending the BME Attainment Gap. I've helped organise a conference called BME Woman White Uni which highlights the plight of BME Women in Academia
Fighting discrimination. As a Muslim woman of colour it's my prority to highlight the gendered islamophobic violence Muslim women face. With a 300% increace in Islamophobic hate crimes in the UK since the Paris attacks, I will ensure NUS takes this seriously.
As an NUS Delegate last year, I campaigned and voted for NUS Leadership. I will make sure the newly elected officers represent the KCL student body.
I will put it on top of my agenda to support women from marginalised communities in leadership positions and fight to eradicate the barricades we face.
