    RUSU to boycott University Challenge


      <b>Student Voice Believes:</b>



      1) University Challenge is a quiz show where teams from different universities enter and compete.</br>

      2) Jeremy Paxman has a history of being sexist and inappropriate to the female contestants, including past team members of Reading.</br>

      3) RUSU should not endorse or promote any institution which puts their members in situations of misogyny and sexism.</br>


      <b>Student Voice Resolves:</b>



      1) The Union should boycott University Challenge and no longer be responsible for the trials and submission of the University of Reading team.
