Durham SU have now introduced pronoun badges
They are to encourage inclusivity
Durham University Students' Union are handing out pronoun badges to new students during Freshers' Week.
This follows the news last month that the University of Edinburgh would be handing out pronoun badges to their students.
However, unlike Edinburgh, whose badges had a choice of "he," "she," or "they," Durham's SU is handing out blank badges allowing students to choose their pronouns.
Following on from the fantastic work at Edinburgh Union – Durham SU's pronoun badges have now arrived ahead of Freshers' week!!

The aim of the badges is to avoid the misgendering of students, especially those who identify as trans or non-binary.
Durham's Welfare and Liberation Officer Meg Haskins said: "We are doing this to show our solidarity with, and support of, our trans and non-binary siblings and to raise awareness about what people can all do to be more inclusive.
"We want Durham SU to be as inclusive and safe a place as possible."
