Aged 16-34? Have you had more than enough of Laura Bates’s everyday whining? Can you make it to Cardiff next Tuesday evening? Then this is for you.

Starting at 8pm next Tuesday, 23 September, there’ll be a debate at Cardiff City Hall. It will be broadcast live by BBC3, in their Free Speech programme – BBC3’s take on Question Time. Among the questions being posed will be:

Do we live in a Sexist Country?

We certainly do, of course, but the people who suffer from serious manifestations of sexism – MGM comes to mind – are almost always men and boys, as people who visit the website of the Alternative Sexism Project will be aware.

The programme makers are looking for people between 16 – 34 who have an opinion and want to have their voices heard. Please forward this to anyone who might be interested in being in the audience. Here’s the link to apply to be an audience member

The topics that will be discussed by the panel will come from the audience, with there being a range of ways in which audience members can submit a question. There’s an option to submit a question on the night as well as through the programme’s Facebook page or the application form. The programme makers say, ‘Our audience drives our agenda, so whatever issues our audience wants to discuss, we try to make sure there is a forum for them to be tackled.’

The programme will be broadcasting live from the Cardiff City Hall, Gorsedd Gardens Rd, Cardiff CF10 3ND at 8pm on 23th September.

On the panel will be three women and one man (isn’t that a bit sexist?):

Angela Epstein Journalist, all-round fine woman, J4MB ‘Maggie’ award winner in 2012.

Omar Hamdi Comedian

Leanne Wood Leader of Plaid Cymru

Last – and least – the most prominent whine merchant in the world:

Laura Bates Founder of the Everyday Whining Project, inaugural member of The Whine Club, inaugural winner of a ‘Whiny Feminist of the Month’ award, leading contender for our next ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ award, for reasons we explain here

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
