Students at the university of Sussex join the WI

Young women at the WI branch at the University of Sussex

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Students at the University of Sussex have formed their own branch of the Women's Institute.

Organiser Rossie Edenbrowe said there is a gap in the clubs available to women - because many involve drink or sport.

The group also offers a chance to learn traditional skills like knitting and sewing - as well as meeting other women from across the University.
