Women’s Department

The Women’s Department exists to advocate for women and non-binary students on campus. We work to make the university a safe place for women and non-binary people, facilitate feminist activism, run campaigns, and host fun events! The department is run by Women’s Officers who are elected during the student elections the previous year.

This year, your Women’s Officers are Srishti Chatterjee (they/them) and Mickhaella Ermita (she/her).

Our focus this year is to fight for Safety on Campus. We also want to make the Women’s Department more intersectional and inclusive, by centring the voices of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) students as well as trans and gender-diverse people who experience sexism, misogyny and other forms of gender-based discrimination.

For more information, visit our Instagram and Facebook pages! Otherwise, chuck us an email at womens@union.unimelb.edu.au.

Let’s smash the patriarchy together!
