NUS calls for summit on ‘lad culture’

New research published by NUS reveals that that 50 per cent of study participants identified “prevailing sexism, ‘laddism’ and a culture of harassment” at their universities. 

For many participants, ‘lad culture’ had been significant in relation to their personal life. Many reported misogynist jokes and ‘banter’ circulating in their friendship groups which made them feel uncomfortable, and pressures to engage in profuse sexual relationships which made it difficult to establish and maintain commitments. Stories of sexual harassment and molestation were common, and there were also accounts of sexual violence.
