Responding to a series of misogynistic cartoons published by the West Australian, drawn by editorial cartoonist Dean Alston, the UWA Guild has called quits on sponsorship and advertising arrangements with the newspaper. The UWA Women's Department and Pelican Magazine led the campaign. Kate Prendergast reports.
Following the Vice-Chancellor's position yesterday not to fly the Pride Flag at the front of campus to show UWA's solidarity with the queer community after the Orlando mass shooting, the Guild have responded by erecting their own Pride Flag. Kate Prendergast also looks further into VC Paul Johnson's decision, precedents in which the WA State Flag has been taken down on campus, and government codes surrounding flags.
