NUS survey on violence against women students
Jess McCabe // 23 November 2009
The NUS has launched a survey on students’ experiences of violence against women.
The survey will be live until 4 January and all women students, including trans women, are invited to complete it on the NUS website:
The NUS Women’s Campaign is pleased to announce the launch of our survey exploring women students’ experiences of harassment, violence, sexual assault and stalking. The survey aims to uncover the specific experiences of women students in relation to violence, how it affects their education, and to establish how safe or unsafe women students feel in different environments.
The Women’s Campaign will be launching a research report of our findings in the new year. We will also make recommendations for changes to ensure better support for those who have experienced violence as well as strategies for preventing it.
Regardless of whether or not you have experienced any kind of violence or harassment, your answers will help us to understand and deal with issues of violence against women students.
Please help us stop violence against women by filling in this survey at www.nus.org.uk/vaw.
The survey is open to all women students, including trans women. The survey will be live until 4 January.
We want this survey to be completed by as many women as possible so that we get a complete and accurate picture of violence against women students. Please fill this survey out, and then forward it to your as many of your friends as possible.
