WEGC Students To Discourage Peers from Attending Massey

Wellington East Girls’ College Students To Discourage Peers from Attending Massey University Over Magazine Cover

"We as High School Students, Leaders of FeminEast, and potential future Massey students are disgusted by the recent cover of MASSIVE.”

“This triggering, objectifying image encouraging rape culture is horrible to have circulating throughout Wellington.”

“As young women having this kind of image spread around at a potential future university and community is very upsetting and unappealing.”

“We, as potential future Massey students, are very discouraged from attending Massey's Wellington Campuses, because of this image and publication.”

"We will inform our peers of the decision as well until we have received confirmation that this incident, or one of a similar nature will never happen again.”

Millie Dow, Maggie Hablous, Tessa Parker and Abby Simpson
