Women’s rights officers and women-only spaces: Addressing women’s oppression on tertiary campuses
The issue of equal rights in tertiary institutions in Aotearoa New Zealand remains alive despite notions of gender equality. This issue, hotly debated in the 1970s and 1980s, has recently received renewed attention. Claims that equality has been achieved are being challenged. The risks associated with women’s oppression, which include boundary violation, such as sexual harassment and sexual assault, still exist. Support for women’s rights policies and the provision of women-only spaces and amenities on campuses can make important contributions to addressing these long-standing issues.
