At the Women’s Conference of the National Union of Students (15-17 March), Jade Baker will be standing for National Women’s Officer. She explains why…
“I’m standing as an anti-cuts activist, proud supporter of the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts and a revolutionary socialist feminist.
“I want to see NUS lead the student revolt against cuts and fees, not sell it out, and the Women’s Campaign should be at the forefront of this fight.
“I am sabbatical VP Education at Westminster University — with a diverse and mainly working-class student body. I’m from a working-class background and spent quite a bit of my childhood in women’s refuges so when I talk about cuts to domestic violence provision, or the scrapping of EMA, or how hard it is for working-class kids to get to university, I am speaking from personal experience.
“Feminism was my ‘way in’ to socialism, and for me socialism and women’s liberation are inseparable.”
