University of Melbourne Student Union Telling Men to act like women

“Privileged” male students have been told to be more like women by curbing their confidence and refraining from dominating or showing off during classes, following workshops run by the University of Melbourne Student Union.

Men should also acknowledge that being born male and white affords them certain privileges and reconsider the use of “Australian banter” during tutorials because of the risks of excluding students from other cultural backgrounds.

Following recent workshops on “how privilege manifests itself in tutorials”, recommendations were given to university staff last week.
