Hey! I’m Rosie Seymour (she/her), I’m a second-year English and Spanish student and this year’s Women’s Officer for Somerville.
My role is to represent any female-identifying members of college, and make sure their views and concerns are heard. If you ever feel uncomfortable within college or the university as a whole please don’t hesitate to speak to me, either in person or via message/email (firstname.lastname@example.org). I’m always up for a chat and anything you tell me will be kept confidential. As Women’s Officer it’s also my job to provide free sanitary products in college, collaborate with the Welfare Officers on sexual health issues and host events to celebrate and advocate for gender equality. Somerville has an incredible history of pioneering women’s education at Oxford, which is why I’m so excited to get involved with my new role and keep upholding the legacy of equality and feminism that this college has enjoyed for a century. I’m looking forward to meeting you all, and I really hope that you all feel you can come to me with any ideas for events, or indeed any concerns no matter how big or small! If you see me around college please don’t hesitate to stop me for a chat, as I’m always up to talk 🙂
