Gender (In)equality and RMIT Facilities...

One could not have passed by the basketball courts on A'Beckett Street and not noticed the consistent gender imbalance. Now I know that all genders are free to use these facilities but clearly they do not. One might assume that the ratio of RMIT students who identify as M or F is roughly 50:50. Yet it is not uncommon for the ratio of M:F on these courts to appear to be more like 50:0. Yes 50:0! Girls, your student fees are subsidising these types of facilities. What would you like to see on campus? Has anybody bothered to ask you?
