Kevin works as a porter at Clare College Cambridge and is coming under pressure from students for taking his stance on women's rights in resigning from the Council.

I don't want to make extra work for him. How about sending a postcard of support rather than letters, thanking him for taking a stand to:

Kevin Price
Porters lodge
Clare college
Trinity Lane

Yup I've sent a letter and copied in the master of the college

Sorry just read the full post! Why would a letter be more work? But fair enough, maybe a postcard would have been a better choice!

Letters require opening (which takes a significant amount time when there are a lot of them) and when someone is subject to a hate campaign they can suffer some anxiety about what a letter might contain.

I sent a card to Kevin earlier this week (in an envelope....)

I've written separately via email to the Master and the Senior Tutor expressing my concerns.

Will do.

Postcard done, thank you

fab idea!

Great idea. Have a stack of postcards and will do this first thing tomorrow.

Will gladly do this. He needs and deserves support for his courage.

My God, though. It's 2020, and asserting that women need to retain our sex-based rights takes real courage. What misogynist hell has been created?

fatblackcatspaw Thu 29-Oct-20 13:56:59

done I'll write to the master later
Does anyone know the name of the Master?

carltongirl Thu 29-Oct-20 14:33:53

Any tips on what you wrote to the Master and senior tutor would be good... I only read his brief and very reasonable words on tolerant discussion...

carltongirl Thu 29-Oct-20 14:47:34

Master is Lord Grabiner QC, Tony...

carltongirl Thu 29-Oct-20 14:49:00

Head porter is Mr Newman Morgan ...

carltongirl Thu 29-Oct-20 14:49:37

Sorry Brenan Morgan, spell check corrected

I saw mine! What a lovely display. I hope the college has taken note and is attending to the toddler problem they have.

Nice he had so much displayed support. It makes a really good, obvious point
