Sixths Form Question Time in St Margaret’s Church

I was a member of the panel at a Sixth Form Question Time in St Margaret’s Church on Wednesday 17 October 2018. Schools from across the country took part.

The panel also included:

  • Samira Ahmed – journalist and broadcaster.
  • Mehreen Baig – presenter, activist and blogger.
  • Caroline Criado Perez – writer, broadcaster and award-winning feminist campaigner.
  • The Reverend Cannon Dr James Walters – Chaplain to the London School of Economics and founding director of the LSE Faith Centre.
  • Anthony Zacharzewski – runs the Democratic Society, a citizen participation organisation based in Brussels and Manchester.

Some of the questions asked were:

  • How can the composition of the House of Commons be made to represent the gender balance of the United Kingdom?
  • How have acts of feminists in the past shaped how feminists act today?
  • Has the increase in the use of direct democracy strengthened or weakened UK politics?
