Winners of the '2015 LSESU Bronze STARs Award', the Atheist, Secularist and Humanist Society (ASH) aims to be a platform for open-minded debate surrounding religion, atheism, secularism and humanism. We especially want to provide a forum for people who want to create awareness and acceptance of those who choose not to believe, or who have some serious doubts about the existence of supernatural beings.
Our wider political agenda is to promote secularism and normalise atheism in society. We provide the chance for members to meet like-minded people at the LSE and to engage in lively discussions with each other, as well as hosting events featuring some eminent speakers. Last year's disguinshed guests included A.C. Grayling, Pragna Patel (Southall Black Sisters), Gita Sahgal (Centre for Secular Space) and Keith Porteous Wood (National Secular Society).

The protest was organised by anti-racist, feminist and human rights groups, namely One Law for All, Southall Black Sisters, Centre for Secular Space, and London School of Economics SU Atheist, Secularist and Humanist Society. Chris Moos was the master of ceremonies of the rally.

The LSESU Atheist, Secularist and Humanist Society welcomes the news that Universities UK have withdrawn their dangerous guidance condoning gender segregation. We note with concern, however, that they continue to defend this ill-conceived document and appear to have withdrawn it only because of the public outcry and a concerted campaign led by the LSESU ASH.

While we welcome the stance of the Equality and Human Rights Commission that gender segregation is “not permissible” under equalities laws, we think the EHRC's statement is worrisome in several aspects.
