LABOUR MP Stella Creasy has revealed she was threatened with gang rape during a two year campaign of sexual harassment at Cambridge University.

The Walthamstow MP, who attended Colchester County High School for Girls, said college authorities “admonished” her instead of punishing the abusers when she made the complaint after running for a student council role at Magdalene College.

Ms Creasy, now 45, said she remains terrified of seeing the men, who have gone on to become doctors, civil servants and high-fliers.

The MP said her first experience of sexual harassment was during her first year at Magdalene College. She said it lasted from 1996 to 1998 and included a campaign of abusive posters when she ran for the role of president of the college’s student council.

Ms Creasy told GB News: “I’ll never forget the night I was in a room with them all and they threatened to gang rape me, let alone the posters that they put up around the college when I had the temerity to stand for a position in the student union.”

She added: “I tell you that because I think that culture isn’t unique to Parliament, where there’s privilege and entitlement, and, frankly, it’s always the men that people think are least likely to do it who are involved in it.”

Ms Creasy continued: “It took public humiliation, and posters, and finally other people coming forward, and me collating the evidence – of all the notes, the spitting in my room, the rubbish that was thrown at me, the sexual abuse and harassment if I tried to walk into the bar, that came from this group of young men.”

Ms Creasy, a prominent campaigner for women’s rights including fighting for maternity leave for MPs, has said the abuse will always affect her.

Cambridge University apologised to Ms Creasy for her “horrific ordeal”, and was expected to be in contact with the MP personally.

A university spokesman said: “We are extremely sorry to hear of the horrific ordeal which Stella Creasy experienced.

“Sexual harassment of any sort has absolutely no place at the university. In recent years the university has taken significant steps in order to provide support for victims of sexual misconduct, to improve systems for reporting any incidents, and to take action as a result.”
