The University of New South Wales is in hot water after a video of male students chanting a sexist song surfaced.
In the video, which appears to have been shot in secret during a “Boys Night Out” last Friday, male students from Philip Baxter College can be heard singing a call and answer song about all of the things they’d like to do to women.
House treasurer and UNSW student James Dunn appeared on the ABC’s 7.30 last night, calling the video appalling.
Dunn also admitted to taking part in the singalong at the time, and said “I have no idea why I did it.
“I’m sort of condemning my own actions at this time, and the actions of everyone in the video,” later adding, “It has been ingrained in many college societies for too long that those things can be gotten away with.”
While the university has said that it will investigate the incident and continue to take steps to eradicate the behaviour, some groups at the university are saying these occurrences are all too common.
UNSW Student Representative Council member Emma Donaldson said that the video, “depicted a sort of chant that is used in, I will admit, not just one college at this university. It is endemic to a lot of colleges,” she said.
In case you couldn’t hear it in the video above, the song goes:
