That's cheered me up immensely after the stag do thread on AIBU. Thanks for posting. Beyond happy to see young men involved in the campaign too.

'I need feminism because: it's easy to ignore sexism when it works in your favour.'

Nice board from a young man.

Thank you for those links, deadlift.

If only all campaigns were as much fun!

Hi,

I'm normally a lurker on here and in the past I've read some posts about young people not being very involved in feminism. Oxford University Women's Campaign ran a thing this week to try and raise awareness of feminism and the response was far greater than expected. People had their picture taken with signs saying why they need feminism and nearly 500 people took part over two days.

I know that there's not really a point to this post but I thought that some of the pictures were really good (and some were quite funny) and I don't know if people will have seen it or not.

The first link is the Women's Campaign tumblr and the second is an Oxford student newspaper article about it (I hope the links work).
