W hen you are a survivor of sexual assault it is almost impossible participating in your education: If students are harassed and abused it affects their ability to access education and has a negative impact on their student experience and academic achievement.

The student who has to switch classes so they no longer have to sit in the same room as their abuser; the student who has to move halls because their institution has failed to remove a predator from campus; the student who feels they have no choice but to drop out of their studies completely because their sexual assault case has been badly handled – these students all have the right to access education but are unable fulfil that entitlement.

We cannot make equal access a reality without removing oppressive behaviours and structural barriers.

Given that the universities are responsible for mantaining these behaviours and barriers, the student liberation movement comes in.
