This feminist conference was ridiculed for asking people not to clap

Their alternative? Jazz hands, obviously.

THE NATIONAL UNION of Students in the UK is holding its women’s conference this week.

It looks to tackle all the legitimate issues that face female students across the UK. But only one motion is capturing the imagination.

This reasonable request

Of course, it has come in for a fair amount of ridicule over the last couple of days

With some people barely able to type, such was their glee

Obviously, the jazz hands plan has not quite been thought through

And other suggestions were quickly forthcoming

One more motion at the conference was also slightly controversial

There is only one response to all this.

Everyone, please. Less clapping and more jazz hands.
