The Everyday Sexism at Leeds Beckett Project exists to catalogue instances of sexism experienced on a day to day basis at Leeds Beckett University. They might be serious or minor, outrageously offensive or so niggling and normalised that you don’t even feel able to protest. It is a place to record stories of sexism faced on a daily basis, in ordinary places to show that sexism exists in abundance in UK higher education, beyond and more specifically here at Leeds Beckett University.
It seems to be increasingly difficult to talk about sexism and equality in a modern society that perceives itself to have achieved gender equality but by sharing your story you’re showing the world that sexism does exist. So stand up and say ‘this isn’t right’, even if it isn’t big or outrageous or shocking. Even if you’ve got used to thinking that it is ‘just the way things are’.
So please, send us your stories, and encourage others to send us theirs.
