"Feminism has gone too far"

"Feminism has gone too far"

An informal debate about advance of Feminism from it's inception in the late 19th century. What modern relevance & importance does it still have in the present day... or has it all gone a bit too far?!

Partly prompted by the speech given by Harry Potters Emma Watson at the recent UN gathering, we are having a debate about this fascinating subject, and I hope you will join us!

You can watch Emma Watson's speech here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-iFl4qhBsE

Is Emma Watson right that the word "Feminism" has perhaps developed a bit of a stigma in recent years?

Is Emma right that to tackle Feminist agendas, she need to call out to Men to help further their goals?

Is Emma right that Men themselves suffer from from stereotypical and outdated expectations - to be tough and strong for example.. does this stunt the development of their emotional intelligence?

We'll talk about a lot of this in a informal round table setting, so please od come armed with your views!


The Lansdowne Club:

Please come as my guests! Other Lansdowne regulars will also be in attendance, they are a diverse, fun and interesting crowd, and we're all looking forward to you joining us too, and bringing along your views! (or just watching and taking it all if you prefer!)

Please RSVP if you'd like to join in on this debate! The dress code at the club is smart casual (no jeans, trainers, men have to wear a jacket...). Just come in and say you're with Marcus Warry, and they will direct you to the Sun Room for the debate! See you there!

P.S. Debates are nearly always held on the last Thursday of every month. Sign up as many as you like!
