On World Toilet Day, the National Student Union organised an action for more gender-neutral bathrooms in universities. The UvA lavatories also got a makeover, courtesy of the ASVA.
Without anonymous grading, we simply can’t expect to receive fair grades, according to political science student Euclid Dochery. He started an initiative to get the political science department of the UvA to recognize this, but is yet to find success.
Politics outside of the UvA face the ongoing struggle to grant a proportional number of female representatives in relation to society. Further, in the workforce, women tend to be underrepresented though how does this play out at our university?
Did you know that you can make a change and have a voice in the university’s politics? No? Well, keep on reading!
