I was very proud of this feature- not only did it take a huge amount of research, interviewing and general sleuthing, but it came 2nd in the category of ‘Best Feature’ at the XMedia Awards (Exeter’s internal journalism awards, judged by industry experts, which incorporate the student TV, radio and paper. As a radio feature came first, mine was the best newspaper feature of the academic year overall).
The article examines the underlying sexism in university Christian Union societies, as only a tiny percentage of Christian Union presidents are female. In the piece I interview students, research hard-to-come-by statistics and examine other faith-based societies at Exeter in order to get a more rounded perspective.
The feature was published in Exeposé Issue 621 Week 20, on pages 12-13, and can be found here.
