Feminism and Its Discontents

Feminism was once synonymous with the demand for equality. But today, many would argue it has become obsessed with identity and difference, with negative consequences for free speech and the relations between men and women. Others, however, see real continuity with the struggles of the past and argue women are still very much oppressed.

Judge rule: is the law taking over politics?

"Five debates a day sounds a bit daunting beforehand, but I really loved it. The speakers are so knowledgeable and passionate about their chosen topic, and the amount of time dedicated to questions from the audience was great as it really brought in alternative views."
