Going Up: sexist lads' culture at university

There's a disturbing report in the Guardian detailing a sexist "lads' culture" at British universities.

An ebook is not going to cure this culture by itself, but it helps if you know your rights, and what to do if the worst comes to the worst and something goes wrong.

Going Up is a troubleshooter for social life at university in England, and is 99 cents - currently 77p - on Kindle.
