More women* among lectures
Written by plenum.
Within society as well as our university women* face sometimes visible, sometimes invisible repressions: these include economic discrimination like lower wages for equal work or the so called "glass ceiling". In our everyday life women* face (hetero-)sexism, physical and also psychological violence. Women* are subjected to standardization of not only the body but also the mind. At our university this manifests itself in patriarchal hierarchies which are male dominated. The amount of women* decreases with the distribution of power within the assignment. For us feminism means more than a quota, it means the removal of hierarchies which oppress men and women* alike! A university as well as a society in which violence and masculine hierarchies live on can only be wrong!
