A numerical advantage of women students in higher education does not always prevent gendered power dynamics between women and men. Hopefully you will not encounter any distressing situations whilst at LSE, but if you do, know that there are staff trained and able to provide you with any non-judgmental support and advice you might need. All LSE services are gender inclusive, which means they are not limited to women students, and no matter with which gender you identify there are people who will help you.
Support at LSE
You can reach out to the Peer Supporters, Advisor to Women Students or any other contact on the Safe Contacts list to talk about your struggles. You can also make a complaint about any form of a discriminatory behaviour. If the issue relates specifically to sexual violence you can book an appointment with trained Sexual Violence Support worker.
Support at LSESU
LSESU has a Women’s Officer who is responsible for campaigning and lobbying on women’s issues, making positive change for women at the LSE.
Support external to the school
There are numerous specialist services that focus on helping women who have expeirenced gender discrimination (like Women's Aid, Hestia), as well as men (Survivors UK, Supportline, ManKind Initiative).
