Julie Bindel is ‘journalist-in-residence’ at Brunel University

Swayne O’Pie and I are looking forward to meeting and debating with Julie Bindel and Cindy Gallop next Friday evening, at Durham University. Our thanks to C for pointing us to a piece about Ms Bindel being the current ‘journalist-in-residence’ at Brunel University. She’s joined the ‘Journalism team’:

Brunel University is, notoriously, the university at which female postgraduate engineering students are eligible for an additional £15,000 p.a. grant on account of their gender alone:

We’ll ask Ms Bindel what she things about this grant next Friday. In the meantime we thought we’d ask Sarah Niblock, Professor and Head of Journalism at Brunel University, what she thinks of the grant. Her university profile page is here:

Along with policemen, professors are clearly getting younger with each passing year.

We’ve just sent an email to Ms Niblock sarah.niblock@brunel.ac.uk about the grant, and asked:

Do you support this move? And if so, could you explain to me why this country specifically needs more female engineers?

Surely a Professor and Head of Journalism won’t struggle to respond to our perfectly simple questions?
