Debates: "A Hundred Years of Women Rights"

As we enter the centenary year of women’s suffrage in the UK, where do we stand with women’s rights and gender equality today?
Women’s rights have undeniably progressed in Western countries, as we discuss and celebrate in part one of this debate. There are also ordinary and extraordinary role models shaping the world through their achievements, as we see in part two.
Yet as the explosion of sexual harassment scandals also demonstrates, our societies are still far too male-dominated and still inflict everyday violence on women. Will this awareness encourage men to embrace feminism? (How) can men be feminists? Are we in the middle of a gender crisis? In part three we adopt a Franco-British and European perspective to debate these questions of crucial relevance for the next 100 years of women’s rights.
