One of the key themes of the last International Conference on Men’s Issues, held eight months ago at Excel London, was “Equal rights for men and women”. We even had the theme on the lectern placard. A playlist of the 20 presentations at the conference, plus some related materials (notably Ewan Jones’s interviews of speakers) is here.
When considering options for a video commemorating International Wimmin’s Day, and the location, it seemed natural for Elizabeth Hobson, our Director of Communications, to ask women, “Do you believe in equal rights for men and women?” as they were passing the statue of Millicent Fawcett, in Parliament Square, London.
We think Elizabeth did a great job – it was the second cold wet day for her working on the streets, having to carry a handbag which surely deserves an entry in The Guinness Book of Records, for its size and holding capacity – and we thank Tom for his filming and editing. The video is here (16:55).
