The Cambridge Student Union (SU) has announced that Milo Eyre-Morgan will be stepping down as Women’s Officer in a statement released this morning (11/1).

Eyre-Morgan will step down next Tuesday (18/1), and a by-election will be held later this month to name a new Women’s Officer for the remainder of the academic year.

In the SU statement, Eyre-Morgan said that “I am sad to be leaving behind an excellent sabbatical officer team, and I wish them all the best for the rest of the year.

“I would also like to give my thanks and best wishes to the Women’s Campaign committee, as well as all the other student campaigners who I’ve worked with; the work I did with students was the highlight of my time at Cambridge SU.”

Over the course of their tenure, Eyre-Morgan delivered the annual consent workshop for JCR and MCR Women’s Officers, led the intercollegiate response to drink spiking, and supported UCU strikers in December.

‘It’s our lives and existence’: Milo Eyre-Morgan on trans liberation

In October, Eyre-Morgan found themselves at the centre of a tabloid storm following the publication of the Women’s Campaign “How to spot TERF ideology” guide.

Many of Eyre-Morgan’s fellow SU officers took to social media today to thank them for their work.

Zak Coleman, the Undergraduate President, wrote on Facebook that Eyre-Morgan “has been incredible to work with for the last 6 months”, while BME Officer Tara Choudhury tweeted that “he’s been a pleasure to work with and an asset to our team.”

Nominations for the new Women’s Officer will open next Tuesday (18/1) to “all students who self-identify as women or for whom ‘woman’ forms part of their gender identity”. Three days of campaigning will precede the start of voting on 31 January, with the results announced on 4 February.
