Written by Trinity Barnatt It’s 10pm and I’m walking home alone after finishing my shift at work. There’s a man walking towards me. He’s about 6ft. Dark hair. Caucasian. Roads too busy I can’t cross it. I get my keys from my pocket and hold them between my fingers. My heart starts racing as he walks towards me. Maybe I should have got on the phone to someone. Anxiety builds in my chest as he gets closer and closer and closer… A wave of relief runs through me as he walks past me. Sarah Everard never felt that wave of relief. For anyone unfamiliar with the recent case of Sarah Everard, she went missing last week after walking home from a friend’s house in south London. Since then, her body has been found and a serving police officer arrested on the suspicion of her murder. While Sarah Everard’s case is devastating, that is not what shocked me. What shocked me was the response: #NotAllMen trending on twitter. In response to a callous crime, thousands of …

Written by Max Ashforth Petitions arise over defunding to the pure mathematics department at the University of Leicester. Freddie Mansfield, a third-year student, and Hannah Amliwala, a second-year student, recently started a student-led petition, that has gained 87 signatures, as of 4 March. This petition was set up in response to one set up by staff, which has been signed by over 1,000 people. The recent announcement has not been supported by all students, as Freddie stated: “I can’t see any positives about how the changes would benefit maths students.” The changes set out by University of Leicester Vice-Chancellor, Professor Nishan Canagarajah, include the redundancies of 12 pure mathematics lecturers. These redundancies would be followed by the appointment of three teaching roles. Currently, staff split their time between teaching and researching the subject, however the plan is for this to be reduced to just teaching roles. It is feared that reducing the number of staff in the department would deter prospective students from applying to the university. The long-term impact and knock-on effects, which would …
