Campaign: To try to tackle attitudes and behaviours associated with lad culture

In my opinion 'lad culture' is a real problem at universities.

It shapes the attitudes and behaviour of men towards women, and can result in sexist or misogynistic comments being dismissed as jokes or banter.

I’ve seen this lead to situations where female students feel harassed and unsafe.

Too often, people don’t think about the literal implications of what they’re saying – particularly when jokes are made about rape.

With Fixers, I want to show that these remarks aren’t funny or acceptable.

While institutions are beginning to address these issues, I want to help students realise that this can have a detrimental effect on their university experience - whether they're male or female.
