Event description

Description

Should we abolish the concept of gender?

Nowadays 'gender equality' seems to be supported by absolutely everybody from Barack Obama and Emma Watson to Prince Harry, all have pledged support. But with such universal support for 'gender equality' do you ever wonder what if 'gender equality' isn’t enough?

Is it short-sighted for 'gender equality' to be a global end-goal for all?

Does the very concept of gender itself undermine our ideals of personal freedom and liberation?

Do rigid gender roles and the idea of what makes a perfect man or woman lead to sexism, homophobia and body dysmorphia?

Is the very existence of gender itself is, by definition, inherently oppressive?

Join us at City Hall for our end of year youth debate!


Join the debate!

50 years on from the milestone Sexual Offences Act of 1967 which partially decriminalised homesexuality we ask you to join in us asking what progess will the next 50 years bring?

Listen to the voice of youth from World Debate Clubs who will be arguing for and against the motion at City Hall on the evening of the 29th November.

To celebrate the 50th year of the Sexual Offences Act this year, iDebate are organising a youth debate where students from London's Further Education Colleges debate whether Gender should be abolished.
