CUSU Women’s Campaign

A message from CUSU:


CUSU Women’s Campaign has already presented a Paper in various Committees last term asking the University to address sexual harassment and sexual violence in the University, and the CambridgeSpeaksOut Survey’s purpose is to gather information from Cambridge students.

Please take a moment to fill it in:

Regardless of whether or not you have experienced any kind of sexual violence or harassment, your answers will help us to understand and deal with issues of sexual violence in Cambridge. The evidence from this survey will be used to campaign for better policies and support for students who have experienced sexual harassment and violence in the University and improve the safety of students.

This survey can be completed entirely confidentially. We don’t need your name or any other information that could be used to identify you. The results will be published anonymously in Varsity Newspaper at the beginning of Easter Term. If you have further questions about the data being published please leave your contact details at the end of the survey.

Thank you for your time and participation.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries,

Best Wishes,
