Warwick Girls Can: Encouraging or condescending?

From the 8th to the 14th of May, the University of Warwick will run the ‘Warwick Girls Can’ campaign across campus. The campaign aims to set a ‘new tone for female participation on campus’ by running numerous free sporting events and classes to encourage more women to take part in sport. The university itself has pledged to become the most active campus university by 2020 and this campaign is being utilised to get more female students involved in order to reach said goal.

International Women’s Day Series: What Women’s Day means to me…

Today, being International Women’s Day I thought it fitting to not only embrace the power of women but to also acknowledge how far we still have to go.

It’s that time of year again – numerous nights out, alcohol, drunken food binges, hangovers, colder and darker days so no need for a bikini! I’m talking about the start of the university term. Endless fresher nights out finished off with a portion of cheesy chips and a very painful hangover the morning after.

Are we past the ‘family summer holiday’?

No matter who you are travelling with, whether it be your family or your friends, you are bound to have an enjoyable experience, however, one that varies depending on who you decide to travel with. Last summer I travelled with three of my close college friends to Rome, Italy. It was the first time I had gone on holiday without my parents and it was definitely an eye-opening experience. As the natural leader of the group, I was in charge of organising the whole holiday and there are so many…
