so last week LUMS female students exposed a closed facebook group joined by some 600 mostly male students, the facebook group goes by the title of ‘Dunkpuna at LUMS’. This facebook group with majority male group members shared misogynistic memes and posts, they also slut shamed and objectified women in their posts and most unfortunately they scathingly targeted LUMS feminist student society. Many of the female students of the university took screen shots of the group’s content and shared and protested on social media platforms. Now collectively many female students have organized a sit in to protest group’s enormously disrespectful behavior and called for prompt actions for removal of misogyny from student campuses and also from online platforms.
This sit in is sending a strong message to all girls in all campuses of the country and that is to speak up if something wrong happens and also to stand with each other because when women are united they can make wonders happen and the most wonderful thing required right now is to ensure respect and tolerance for women freedom is provided to women unconditionally.
And finally we appreciate all girls who are bravely taking a stand on this matter at LUMS. More power to you girls!
