An open invitation to the Women’s Campaign
by Oxford Students for Life
Here’s the statement we released to the press:
Free speech is a vital principle of a democratic society, and at a university of all places it should be protected. We’re very happy to discuss people’s concerns about the event, but it would be a shame if open debate was shut down.
While we recognise that this is an issue which affects women especially – and partly for that reason we have hosted two all-women panel debates in the last year – Tim and Brendan are two well-known commentators coming to talk about an issue which has an impact on the whole of British society.
As a sign of our commitment to dialogue on this challenging issue, we’d like to invite WomCam to co-host a debate next term.
