The Birkbeck Women’s network strives to be a diverse, intersectional representative body that reflects the needs and interests of all self-defining women (and non-binary) students on campus. The network and women’s campaign are headed up by your Birkbeck Students’ Union women’s officer, Naomi Smith, with tons of chances for you to get involved and have your voice heard.
Although we have loads of exciting events already planned throughout the year, ultimately this is your network, and will be shaped by our members and how they want to be represented on campus.
So far, we’ve planned a seminar series to showcase the amazing research of women lecturers at Birkbeck, a symposium to discuss how women can contribute to discussions about and solutions to the climate crisis, and a termly book club… We’ll also be talking about ending period poverty, voting in the London mayoral elections, and more…
We’ll also have plenty of opportunities for you to make your voice heard, including regular network meetings, and a new content platform for you to share your stories, interests and anything else you want to talk about (all contributors will be paid).
Membership is free – join through the Students’ Union website – and open to all students on campus, regardless of gender identity. The women’s network will always aim to create an inclusive space for all whilst seeking to uplift the voices and experiences of women on campus, so get in touch with us if you have any questions or concerns about participation.
And finally, connect with us HERE on Instagram to find out more about what we’re up to this year. Get in touch with any burning questions, concerns or comments – we can’t wait to hear from you!

By joining the Birkbeck SU Women's campaign you recognise that while all genders are welcome, there may be times where we will be promoting a "safe space" which may not make all events suitable all students. Safe spaces are an important part of liberation so that students can self organise on the issues that affect them.
