The 8th of March 2017 at International Women’s day, the grassroots organisation TU Delft Feminists exists one year.

In May 2016 the dean of TU Delft’s Faculty Architecture and the Built Environment Peter Russell made a promise to support the cause of equal opportunity, inclusion, fair representation and diversity. Until now not much is done or even changed.
Reason for the students to write him an open letter:
