STAND AGAINST MISOGYNY IN UNIVERSITIES
On Saturday, 27th August 2022, a small group of North South University students have gone to demonstrate with banners, claiming to be on behalf of the general student body, that they are in support of the High Court judge’s comments on the victim’s clothing regarding the 18th May Narsingdi Railway Station incident.
The demonstration in question took place in front of NSU, with posters going as far to claim these women are “cultural terrorists” There are many people that disagree with comments made by this demonstration. The ongoing dilemma in Bangladesh about women’s clothing is saddening.
Thus, our movement is against people who have such misogynist and reductive ideals, passing judgment on women's clothing.
Sign this petition if you:
1. stand beside women's right to freedom of expression, especially in educational institutions,
2. demand a thorough investigation of the students behind the original protest, and that the authorities of NSU take apt measures against them.
