From Friday May 16th to Saturday May 17th, the Oxford Union will once again host the annual Women’s Open Debating Competition. The tournament aims at encouraging women, who are still in the minority in the global debating circuit, to participate more actively in debating. Especially after the incidents in Glasgow last year, where female debaters in a final were publicly insulted, the Oxford Women’s Open also became an important event to adress misogyny and gender-related issues in the debating world.

The tournament will comprise of five preliminary rounds and a break to the semi finals. Furthermore, there will be workshops and discussion groups. The CAs will be Sally Rooney and Catherine Murphy; the Reg fee is still to be announced.
