Presenter Carla Buzasi introduces the panel of writers and feminist theorists. They will discuss the steps for the feminism movement beyond achieving equality with men.
Equality cannot be the end goal of feminism. Liberation from the patriarchal society should be the goal.
Feminism must handle intimate oppression. Campbell compares the new feminist movement to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and explains how neoliberalism and patriarchy shaped modern society.
Aaronovitch talks about central idea of feminism—abilities should not be judged by gender. The principle can be applied to other oppressed characteristics.
The panelists discuss the implications of simplifying feminism to equality between women and men. Bindel says that principle led to a change in societal practices, but has not diminished the threat of sexual violence. Campbell says the gender pay gap hinders the achievement of true equality between men and women.
Bindel says there have been numerous setbacks throughout the course of the feminist movement because of the patriarchal society. Aaronovitch explains how new topics arose because of changes in public consciousness.
The panelists discuss the future and goals of feminism if equality is not achievable. They agree that people must continue to be optimistic about feminism and what it can achieve.

Equality is usually seen as the goal of feminism. Yet with women more than a third more likely to go to university than men, and with more female entrants to medicine and law, does this limit the horizon? Should we be championing difference rather than equality? Or is this a dangerous heresy that threatens progress? The Panel Times columnist David Aaronovitch, writer and broadcaster Beatrix Campbell and feminist journalist Julie Bindel look beyond equality.
