Polls Say Feminism Has Not Failed
Last night’s debate in the Intelligence Squared series asked if Feminism had failed and had a resounding “No”. The debate series polls the audience on the way in and as they leave to see how the debate swayed their opinion.
Just over 51% of the audience went in against the assertion of the debate that feminism has failed. Over a quarter of the audience said they didn’t know and it was this group that saw the greatest swing. After some impassioned arguments from Jennifer Byrne, Monica Dux and Stephen Mayne several audience members changed their minds.
The final poll saw 53.75% of the audience saying feminism had not failed. Only 0.35% of the audience were swayed by argument against.
Video of the event will be live on the Wheeler Centre site soon.
