    thing is ,they are threatening other students by doing such things,so that no one can raise there noise against any rule(restriction).students wants to raise there voice.but they cant .student council is in there hand.
    they must see why there own students are going against them..and raising voice on internet ,not telling them… because there is no other why to say there point….there must be a open discussion on rules.

    I support her cause of Gender equity. it is time when campuses put this in practice and not just in their statements.
