Anna Hush named on AFR's 100 Women of Influence List
Words by Noah Vaz
Anna Hush, Director of End Rape on Campus, and former SRC Women’s Officer has been named on this year’s AFR 100 Women of Influence list.
The list is comprised of women from different fields and industries who have distinguished themselves by working towards various causes.
Anna was recognised for her role in publishing the Red Zone Report earlier this year, alongside Walkley-award-winning journalist, Nina Funnell. Funnell, another USYD alumna, and former tutor at the university was also recognised on the list. In speaking to Pulp, Anna had the following to say.
“I’m very proud to be listed in the 100 Women of Influence for 2018. I see this as recognition of the hard work that End Rape on Campus Australia has done in recent years to support survivors of sexual violence at universities and advocate for change, alongside survivors themselves and other young feminists. To see our work acknowledged in these national awards is a testament to the strength of collective feminist organising."
Anna is currently working on her PhD, examining how student activists have responded to sexual violence at Australian universities. Additionally, she is co-directing fEMPOWER workshops, which educate high school students about gender, consent, and feminism, as well as continuing her ongoing work with EROC Australia.
