In this episode, our managing editor Dr Michaela Benson interviews Anna Bull (University of Portsmouth) and Tiffany Page (University of Cambridge) about their work with the 1752 group to end sexual misconduct in higher education. They talk frankly about staff to student sexual misconduct, highlighting how power is enacted in and through this, and stress that the development of support structures and reporting procedures within Higher Education institutions is long overdue. Describing the paired strategy of the 1752 group in both working at a national level to lobby for change and conducting research in this area, they highlight their success in getting this issue onto the political agenda and working with institutions to develop codes for best practice.
