Sorry if this is on here already but just seen it on twitter.

It's this Wednesday in Brighton which may be too short notice for me but you can book here. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/debate-not-hate-we-need-to-talk-about-gender-tickets-38129665857/amp

Hope that one goes ahead, trouble free.

I'm speechless. These women are amazing.

Rumandraisin1 Sun 24-Sep-17 11:05:13

In case anyone else wasn't aware, Mayday 4 Women (which I'm pretty sure is the same group as the secret Facebook group that some Mumsnetters are part of) now has a twitter account "*@GraDiscussion*"

I wish this could be streamed online for women who aren't close to bath.

Ereshkigal Sun 24-Sep-17 11:16:34

I'm speechless. These women are amazing.

They really are.

Datun Sun 24-Sep-17 11:42:11

I'm going. Yes, they are amazing. And it's working.

Datun Sun 24-Sep-17 11:43:08

But note they cannot put the venue yet. For fear that it will be attacked and forced to withdraw.

Ereshkigal Sun 24-Sep-17 11:47:45

I can't go. Will definitely be at the next one, wherever it is.

Ereshkigal Sun 24-Sep-17 11:48:56

But note they cannot put the venue yet. For fear that it will be attacked and forced to withdraw.

Yes. It's bullying. Plain and simple.

I’m going to go to the Brighton meeting too. I’ll try to post some video and photos here if I’m able to film on the day.

I wish they would tweet / blog their experience of trying to find a venue / trying to find panellists to put the trans side / receipt of threats.

It would be revelatory to many .

Natsku Mon 25-Sep-17 13:15:14

Hope there's no attacks at this one! Wish I could go, alas being in a different country doesn't help.

Would have loved to have gone but have another appointment @10 am - couldn't get into Brighton before 12 🙁

TheCountessofFitzdotterel Tue 26-Sep-17 16:25:55

Bumping since this is tomorrow. I have just seen the line-up and it looks amazing. Wish I could go (but am at other end of country sad)

Blanchefleur Tue 26-Sep-17 16:46:34

I'm also at the other end of the country. Looking forward to hearing a report from those of you who can make it.

I wish they would tweet / blog their experience of trying to find a venue / trying to find panellists to put the trans side / receipt of threats.

Yes, I would also be interested to hear whether it has been better or worse since the mainstream press reported the previous event.

Thelilywhite Tue 26-Sep-17 17:43:56

Me too but so am I.

Datun Tue 26-Sep-17 23:31:52

Just in case anyone's missed it, the venue tomorrow is The Grand Hotel, Brighton, starting at 11am.

Hope it all goes smoothly.

PencilsInSpace Wed 27-Sep-17 08:06:47

Good luck everyone who's going to this today. I wish I could be there.

blackistheneworange Wed 27-Sep-17 09:17:26

Good luck to everyone today.

I agree I wish I could see the discussion. There is a series of clips on YouTube where they filmed a discussion/seminar on gender discussions. It would be great to have the same for this.

I hope it went well for all involved.

theendisnotnigh Wed 27-Sep-17 09:50:58

Isn't it awful that we have to wish people good luck and are wondering whether everyone will remain safe and able to speak (at a Labour party event) ? sad
I live in hope that women will be allowed to speak freely and our voices heard.

HemlockIsSpartacus Wed 27-Sep-17 09:55:51

Gutted I can't be there, looking forward to hearing how it all goes though.
