Oxford Union under fire for male-dominated term card

first_imgThe Oxford Union today faces mounting criticism over the gender imbalance of the speakers in its Michaelmas term card.Of the overall 61 speakers confirmed last week, just twelve are women – arguably a markedly low figure for a university which has a 46% female student body. It’s also a noticeably worse percentage than that of the Cambridge Union’s term card, where eleven of the 28 speakers are women.The over 80% male term card has been criticised by the Oxford SU VP for Women, Katy Haigh, who said in a statement to Cherwell: “While I greatly appreciate the efforts the Union has made recently to engage with topics of equality and diversity, we need to see more from the Oxford Union.“An establishment as old and prestigious as the Oxford Union should surely have adequate power and resources to engage a more diverse range of speakers.”Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden, activist and former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, and actor Anna Faris are a few of the women speaking this term.Meanwhile, people of colour fare even worse, with only seven non-white speakers on the term card, including British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful and actor Terrence Howard .The gender and racial imbalance has sparked a backlash from women’s and diversity officers across the University, who told Cherwell the Union needed to improve its representation of women and minorities.The St Hilda’s Women’s Rep expressed her frustration with the term card that contains only two women of colour, compared with 44 white men. She said: “The Oxford Union’s term card proves that success and intelligence at Oxford are continuously and persistently equated with whiteness and masculinity.”Rachell Collett, the Women’s Officer for both Class Act and Oxford University Labour Club, said she was not surprised by the gender disparity in an institution which she claimed is “dominated by private school boys”.“I think a failing like this pretty much sums the Union up and shows just how much needs to change in a uni where debating and politics are still the preserve of men,” she said.Chris Zabilowicz, the Union President, admitted that he was “disappointed” with the gender imbalance, but insisted that it did not reflect a bias held by the Union, just that more men accepted invitations.“Anyone who knows me will support me when I say I very much care about diversity, as the first openly gay President of the Oxford Union and an access member myself, and that I strived to put together a term card that reflects this.”last_img read more

In Short

first_imgDouble D systemDouble D Food Engineering has developed a Clean In Place (CIP) system, to meet the specific hygiene needs of industrial bakers producing speciality bread, where toppings such as butter, cheese, garlic, olive oil, ham or tomatoes require extra efficient cleaning. It features sparge pipes, which deliver a pressurised, heated, caustic solution throughout the oven.Wholegrain studyThe intake of higher levels of wholegrain and cereal fibre in older adults has been linked to lower total body fat, in a study by the American Society for Nutrition. The study, carried out on 434 adults found that participants who consumed the highest amounts of wholegrain had approximately 2.4% less total body fat and 3.6% less abdominal fat than those who ate the least.Immigrant issueEight illegal immigrants face deportation after they were arrested while working at Warburtons’ Enfield bakery. During an arranged visit to the bakery by the UK Border Agency (UKBA), six Pakistanis, one Zimbabwean and one South African were found unable to prove their right to work in the UK. A spokeperson for Warburtons said it will give the UKBA its full support until the matter is resolved.Cookie upgradeFollowing its cookie launch in Selfridges, Sobo Chocolate is upgrading to a bespoke cookie stand in the department store’s foodhall.

News story: Home Secretary visits police centres preparing for EU exit

first_imgThe Home Secretary has today (Monday 18 February) visited 2 police hubs to see how law enforcement is preparing for the possibility of leaving the European Union without a deal.Sajid Javid was given a tour of the International Crime and Coordination Centre (ICCC), a unit recently established by the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC).The ICCC will act as a centre of expertise to support police forces in using alternative co-operation mechanisms with European partners should a deal not be agreed before the UK leaves the EU.Home Secretary Sajid Javid said: The Home Office has provided £2.4 million for the ICCC in 2018 to 2019 and confirmed that the department will continue to fund the unit in 2019 to 2020.The Home Secretary also went to the National Police Coordination Centre (NPoCC), where he was given an overview of its operations by Chief Constable Sara Thornton, the NPCC’s chair.Launched in 2013, the NPoCC co-ordinates the deployment of police officers and staff across UK policing during major events and operations.It recently oversaw police response to the visit of US President Donald Trump in July 2018. The visit constituted the largest deployment of officers since 2011 and was delivered safely and securely by police. The UK’s main objective is to maintain existing levels of security co-operation and protect mutually beneficial capabilities, which is in the interests of both Britain and the EU. It is our duty as a responsible government, however, to prepare for all scenarios. I am reassured that our police, through the International Crime Coordination Centre and the National Police Coordination Centre, are well-prepared to respond to all scenarios.last_img read more

Jazz Is Phish Pays Tribute To Prince With ‘Purple Rain’ Encore [Watch]

first_imgPhish-inspired collective Jazz Is Phish took the stage at the Ardmore Music Hall outside of Philadelphia, PA last night, playing a monster set for the phans in attendance. The group is known for their instrumental interpretations of Phish classics, and they did not disappoint, bringing out classics like “You Enjoy Myself” and “Ghost” to open the show.Among the many highlights from the Phishy performance was a cover of Prince’s “Purple Rain,” coming in to close out the show in the encore position. The cover has been a staple of Phish’s repertoire since its debut in 1993, performed with drummer Jon Fishman on lead vocals. While Fishman sing-alongs are often played in jest, there’s no denying that “Purple Rain” is a fan favorite among Phish – and Fish – performances.With that in mind, Jazz Is Phish took the Prince classic and made it their own last night. Bassist Anthony Wellington spoke about performing with Victor Wooten at Paisley Park for Prince’s birthday, and reflected on the opportunity to meet Prince at the event. Watch how it all goes down below, thanks to Chris Cafiero:For fans heading to New Orleans for Jazz Fest this week, do not miss Jazz Is Phish’s performance on what we’re affectionally calling ‘Tribute Night’ at The Howlin’ Wolf. The late night show, held after the NOLA Crawfish Festival on April 26th (during the “daze between” Jazz Fest) features an all-star Amy Winehouse tribute, a set from Turkuaz playing The Band, a Phish-inspired set from Holly Bowling, covers from the Joe Marcinek Band, and Jazz Is Phish!
