Feminism 2020 is going to Parliament

When Massey University cancelled our room booking it was a blow not just to feminism in New Zealand, but to the principle and practice of free speech. However, following the disappointing decision by the university, MP David Seymour contacted us out of principle to invite us to speak at Parliament. We’re grateful to David for his unwavering commitment to free speech. On Friday evening Speak Up For Women will be hosted by David in the Banquet Hall of New Zealand Parliament. While it will be an amazing experience and a whole lot grander than the lecture theatre we booked outside of term time at Massey, the important thing for us is that we have somewhere to speak up. Below are interviews conducted by Sean Plunket on Magic Talk with David Seymour and our spokeswoman Ani O’Brien.
