Exeter FemSoc amplify the voices of Black Women at Exeter with #ShareTheMicNow

From 10-16 August, Exeter FemSoc ran a hugely successful campaign, #ShareTheMicNow, focussing on amplifying the voices of Black Women at Exeter.

The campaign saw FemSoc take over the Instagram accounts of a wide range of societies at Exeter, as well as the Students’ Guild account, with students sharing their experiences and thoughts. The topics ranged from the #blacklivesmatter movement and the impacts of police brutality, to music and the arts, to important black figures from history and personal experiences of racism, along with loads more.

We’d like to thank and congratulate Exeter FemSoc for organising the campaign, and every single society that took part in the takeover – you can find a link to each society’s Instagram page below with the student that ran the takeover, where you can catch up on their #ShareTheMicNow takeover:
