Equality analysis of the songbook is completed - work on the new songbook is progressing

The equality analysis of Teekkarilauluja songbook brings up injustice in the singing culture. The recurring male perspective and the role of women only in connection with active males were found to be particularly problematic. The songbook also included violent, homophobic, racist and other discriminatory lyrics. The analysis provides a good starting point for the equality work in Aalto University Student Union and the work of the editorial board of the songbook. Work on the new songbook is progressing.
