Event Details

Are social networking sites and student entertainment events such as Carnage creating spaces where laddish behaviour is encouraged and women are expected to act confident, fit and constantly up for it?  Is the increasing use of sexualised images to sell leisure and entertainments on campus and online reinforcing narrow, limited roles for women and men?  What do you feel about the student culture on and off campus?   Are we moving forward with liberalising public space for women and men or are we going backwards?  

Come along and listen to a variety of opinions and air your views in this question and answer session.
